REALTORS pledge help for Texas and call for donations

Aug 29, 2017
The National Association of REALTORS is calling on members nationwide to donate funds to the REALTOR Relief Foundation to support storm victims. The RRF, whose goal is to help families who have endured catastrophic loss, will use the money for mortgage and rental assistance. 

“This may require our REALTOR family’s largest effort since Hurricane Katrina—or even 9/11,” RRF President Martin Edwards wrote in an internal memo to NAR directors and staff. “Hopefully, REALTORS across America will heed the call to donate without precedent, as the on-the-ground membership in Texas will be stretched beyond belief.”

NAR President William E. Brown said in a statement that the storm provides an opportunity for all 1.2 million REALTORS to focus their energy on supporting each other and their colleagues in Texas, including donating to RRF. “There will be many families in the greater Houston area who need our help,” Brown said. “It will take time to know the full impact of Hurricane Harvey, but we know the devastation will be widespread and that our support will be necessary.”
