The national Association of Realtors® honored Jill Rich as one of its original Good Neighbor Award winners at its annual convention in San Francisco earlier this month.
The awards honor Realtors for volunteer efforts to improve the lives of people in need. First recognized in 2000 for her support of American Red Cross disaster relief efforts, Rich is the only person to receive the award in two separate years. A lifelong volunteer, Rich also has worked with nonprofits that combat homelessness. She founded an organization that provides support and resources to refugees who fled to the Tucson area from war-torn and poverty-stricken countries, including South Sudan, Guatemala, and Syria. Her second Good Neighbor Award honored her for helping 54 refugees from Sudan, known as “Lost Boys,” forge a new path in America.
To date, she has touched the lives of 3,000 refugees from nearly 20 countries. Rich and three other original winners from 2000 each received a grant of $2,400 for a nonprofit — Rich designated the American Red Cross. The grants are funded by Good Neighbor Award sponsors realtor.com and Wells Fargo. To read the full article on REALTOR® Magazine click here.
