Sun Realty Guests Help Five Outer Banks Non-Profits this Giving Tuesday

The Outer Banks is not only a great place to visit with your family each year, with miles of wide-open beaches, three National Parks, tons of history, and incredible restaurants and unique shops, but we also offer a strong sense of community and togetherness for those who choose to live and work here. Much of that is due in part to the variety of charitable non-profits that serve this community. We come together when it's needed most. And there is no shortage of opportunities to volunteer and give back to the community groups who keep our little string of islands going year after year.
