PWAR is proud to support local charities through volunteering time, and providing in-kind contributions with the help of our members. Here are a few charities that we have built a relationship with to help those in need.
Boys & Girls Club
The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) recently announced a partnership with the largest youth-serving organization in America, the Boys & Girls Club. Established over 100 years ago, the Boys & Girls Club has more than 4,100 chapters nationwide and serves as a ‘second home’ to nearly four million kids each year. The Boys & Girls Club is a ‘home away from home’ for many kids, helping to stabilize lives and foster opportunity by offering positive supervision after school. Clubs connect caring community members – like REALTORS® – with kids to identify career goals, give back to their communities, and build relationships that impact their futures.

PWAR has teamed up with The Good News Community Kitchen to collect items for their Meals 2 Go Kits, which provides meal bags for local school-aged children with food insecurity outside of school hours. TGNCK provide these kits to five elementary schools in the area.
Keep Prince William Beautiful
Keep Prince William Beautiful is a non-profit environmental organization that serves Prince William County through partnering with residents, businesses and government to educate and inspire people to be environmental stewards and Keep Prince William Beautiful.
In collaboration with Keep Prince William Beautiful, PWAR has Adopted a Spot in the blocks surrounding the PWAR building. We will maintain our Spot free of litter and debris on an on-going basis. Spot maintenance takes approximately 1 to 2 hours per cleanup. According to Keep America Beautiful, the presence of litter can decrease property value by 7% and increase crime. Adopt-a-Spots help ensure that communities stay clean , remain safe, and inspire people to be environmental stewards. Data collected from cleanups is analyzed and reported to the county, state, and additional environmental data systems and is used to enforce county policy to ensure areas stay clean.
Prosperity House is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides housing assistance and related support services to homeless residences of Prince William County, the City of Manassas and Manassas Park.
