Ida Kelly & Channing Kelly are Good Neighbors

Thursday, May 18th, 2023 at 2:46pm.

The Good Neighbor Award Program not only recognizes individuals and their charities for their good work but also helps the public understand the positive impact of REALTORS® in our community.

REALTORS® Ida Kelly and Channing Kelly were selected as GAAR Good Neighbor recipients for their contributions to the Food Pantry at SY Jackson Elementary School. 

The Food Pantry provides meals to students and their families who are experiencing food insecurity. Six years ago, when Ida and Channing took over the program, they established relationships with neighborhood groups, churches, and retailers who became partners with the school. They scheduled an annual food drive at the beginning and end of each school year and hosted a "Foodraiser". To sustain the program, they recruited and trained a new volunteer to ensure the program's foundation will continue to evolve in the years ahead.

We're proud to call REALTORS® Ida Kelly and Channing Kelly Good Neighbors!
