John Hacker is a wonderful example of the volunteer spirit that is alive within the Orange County Association of REALTORS. He is a dedicated volunteer with a passion for helping the veteran community and was the deserving recipient of the Association’s 2015 Volunteer of the Year Award. At the core of his volunteer service in 2015 was his tireless work as the chairperson of the Peer Navigators Group, where he organized the volunteer effort to help Homeless Veterans at the 2-day Orange County Stand Down. This outreach included the coordination of on hand local service providers and organizing meals and overnight sleeping quarters for many of the veterans as they sought much needed assistance.
