At Ocracoke Island Realty, we are dedicated to our small island community and to giving something back through both our energies and our donations. OIR will match any donation given to the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department, Ocracoke Community Park and Ocracoke Foundation through our matching donation program. We are proud to have been involved from the start on some of our community’s most recently successful projects such as the creation of Ocracoke’s own radio station, WOVV, the building of the Community Park, and revitalizing the Tale of Blackbeard. Donations to the Ocracoke Booster club and PTA have helped to bring positive improvement for local students, including several new sports teams.
OIR supports efforts to preserve Ocracoke’s heritage by giving to the Ocracoke Preservation Society and Springer’s Point Nature Preserve. We co-sponsor annual community events such the Pirate Jamboree, Ocracoke 5K/10K, the Memorial Day Fireman’s Ball, and the Ocrafolk Festival.
Community service is vital to the heartbeat of a small community like Ocracoke, therefore OIR encourages employees to donate their time and effort to community projects. We have several individuals that give their time to projects at Ocracoke School, including coaching sports teams and PTA. Our employees are also dedicated members of the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department, the Ocracoke United Methodist Church, Ocracoke Assembly of God, Ocracoke Daycare Board, Ocracoke Island Decoy Carvers Guild, and the Friends of the Library Board.
During our Christmas Cheer project, employees organize fundraisers and OIR matches the money raised. We then partner with Hyde county social services to help families in need of help through the holidays.
We are so proud to be part of this special community and enjoy our opportunities to give back!
