The Massachusetts Association of REALTORS® (MAR) announced today that Suzann Ward of Barnbrook Realty in Great Barrington was named MAR’s 2014 Good Neighbor Award winner for her work on behalf of Breaking Bread Kitchen and Pantry. The Good Neighbor Award recognizes REALTORS® for their community activism.
Breaking Bread Kitchen and Pantry is a once weekly community meal, every Thursday of the year, using the kitchen and dining facilities of the American Legion in Sheffield. Area churches and civic groups take turns preparing and hosting a meal for those in the community who need nourishment and friendship.
Ward has been volunteering for Breaking Bread Kitchen for the past ten years, and is now co-chair of the program. Her leadership role does not deter her from involving herself in running nearly every aspect of the dinners, from soliciting donations, organizing volunteers, to the chopping and cooking.
Ward was also recognized as the 2014 Berkshire County Board of REALTORS® Good Neighbor Award winner.
In addition to Ward, Deborah Carberry of LAER Realty Partners, Methuen and Thalia Tringo of Thalia Tringo & Associates Real Estate, Somerville were awarded 2014 Good Neighbor Award Honorable Mentions.
