NABOR® HELPS PROGRAM

The NABOR® HELPS program was formed by the NABOR® Board of Directors in direct response to the needs of our community at the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The board offered it resources - volunteers, services, strategic partnerships and funds - to help sustain and support those in Collier County who were impacted by the coronavirus.

Meals for First Responders and Healthcare Professionals Program (April 2020)

In an effort to support and recognize the work of Collier County’s first responders and front-line healthcare workers during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® provided a fund of over \$12,000, donated by the board and contributing members, toward take-out meal credits for the first responders and front-line healthcare workers to enjoy at one of five local restaurants.
