Mastalerz receives Good Neighbor Award

PAWTUCKET – The Northern Rhode Island Board of Realtors awarded its inaugural Good Neighbor Award to Judy Mastalerz, of Attleboro, Mass., of the Century 21 Stachurski Agency in Pawtucket, for her work with We Heart Lives in Smithfield, on Thursday, May 27.

Along with the award, NRIBR made a $1,000 contribution to We Heart Lives in Mastalerz’s name. The Good Neighbor Award recognizes a Realtor who has made an extraordinary impact on their communities through their volunteer work.

Mastalerz’s commitment to We Heart Lives, a 501(c)3 organization with a mission to strengthen families through school mentorship programs, community events, and by providing food and resources for children, takes the form of volunteering every month, and a long history of personal financial contributions to the organization. Representatives said she has volunteered nearly 140 hours to the organization since January 2020, and has raised $3,750 to support the 7,800 individuals supported by the organization.

“Her tireless efforts to set up, extend kindness to those who attend to pick up groceries, clothes, and pack food into car trunks has made her a valuable member of our team,” said Kathleen Egersheim, director of We Heart Lives. “Judy’s conviction to help those in Rhode Island who really would have little else is remarkable.”

Local recipients of the Good Neighbor Award are considered for the Rhode Island statewide Good Neighbor Award. State Good Neighbor Award recipients are considered for the National Association of Realtors Good Neighbor Award, with five winners announced each fall in Realtor Magazine.
