REALTORS Raise $1.8M for Storm Victims

The real estate industry has been pouring in donations to go toward supporting storm victims affected by catastrophic flooding from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. State and local association donations to the REALTORS® Relief Foundation have totaled $1.2 million. The National Association of REALTORS® announced this week that it would give an additional $600,000 contribution to the RRF.
The RRF says 100 percent of all donations go directly to victims of natural disasters. “The devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma is enormous, and our thoughts and support go out to all of those affected,” says NAR President William E. Brown. “The National Association of REALTORS® wants our members and the consumers they serve to know that the REALTOR® family is here for them. We encourage one and all to join NAR in donating to the REALTORS® Relief Foundation.”
The RRF was established in 2001 in response to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Since then, the foundation has raised more than $26 million for housing-related aid, which supports mortgage and rental assistance for disaster victims.
