REALTOR® Action Day is a half-day event where Cape Fear REALTORS® membership is mobilized to do community service through their volunteering at various events throughout the region. Number and type of events change slightly year over year, however the focus is parks clean up, beach protection or renourishment, community spaces (gardens), and interaction with the public.
