The Needs Of Others Inspires Rutherford County Realtor

SMYRNA, TN., – It’s a well known fact that when we work together toward a goal as a team we can accomplish much more than going at a task individually. Smyrna Realtor Heather Karl knows that from both her experience in the business of home sales and community service.


Heather is taking the ?team approach’ to heart during the month of September as the United Way Campaign Team Captain at the Crye-Leike Smyrna sales center.


“Since the first year I volunteered as a United Way Team Captain I have been consistently amazed by how far the agency reached and what services it offers right here in our community,” said Heather. “I had the opportunity to visit some of the community centers United Way donations support and learned that children in those centers sometimes have their only daily nutrition provided in one meal or snack during their stay. The need is very real.”


Heather carries on a long-standing relationship and tradition that Crye-Leike associates have supporting United Way during its annual September giving campaign. Since 2000 the company has made workplace giving fun for everyone – raising donations that support and sustain agencies that provide vital services to those in need.


“Bringing donations to the Smyrna/LaVergne Food Bank you see that there really are people who depend on the assistance,” said Heather. “The partner agencies and initiatives of United Way of Rutherford and Cannon counties cover everything from Alive Hospice, Salvation Army, domestic violence programs, youth services, Boys & Girls Club, Girl Scouts, Tennessee Poison Center, Legal Aid and more.”


In 2007, Heather helped organize and promote a Chili Cook-Off fundraiser at the Smyrna office to benefit United Way and the Masters Touch agency.


“Giving even the smallest contribution makes it possible for so many agencies to exist and help those who need it most,” said Heather. “Many people right here in our community have probably needed or used these services without knowing that it’s possible because of the support of the United Way.”


All of the funds Crye-Leike Smyrna raises will stay in Rutherford and Cannon counties. United Way will disperse all funds collected based on a formula targeting approximately 28% for education, 22% for health, 16% for rebuilding lives and 34% for income assistance.


“It’s very rewarding to be a part of the campaign again this year,” said Heather. “And it’s always important to give back – it all comes full circle.”
