Seven hundred Realtors from across Mecklenburg and Iredell counties participated in a volunteer project Friday that included refurbishing a community garden, repairing a soup kitchen and providing critical repairs for homeowners. Druid Hills in Charlotte was among the target areas, with 200 volunteers painting, landscaping and clearing debris from areas between Statesville and Norris avenues. Over the past eight years, more than 4,600 Realtor volunteers have participated in the annual event.
