Hurricane Irma: Help Victims Recover from Monster
Storm

NAR Realtors(R) Relief Fund

Donate Today


September 11, 2017

Dear REALTOR® Family:        
       

“I don’t know that anybody comes together better
than REALTORS® do.” 

That’s what
one Houston Association of REALTORS® staff member said as
REALTORS® from around the country rallied to provide support to his
community after Hurricane Harvey. In fact, thanks to your generosity,
thousands of people displaced by Harvey will have a roof over their
heads during the long road to recovery. Your contributions have enabled
the REALTORS® Relief Foundation to provide $1.75 million in mortgage
and rental assistance to Texas families whose homes were devastated by
Harvey. 

But our work is not finished. With Hurricane Irma’s
destructive sweep through the southeast, including Florida, Puerto Rico,
and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and wildfires burning in our northwestern
states, the need for natural disaster relief funding this year is
unprecedented.

As we saw after Harvey, REALTORS® often act heroically
to attend to the immediate needs of their communities. So why take the
extra step to contribute to the REALTORS® Relief Foundation? Two
reasons. First,
every dollar you donate goes directly to victims of
disaster.
The National Association of
REALTORS® covers 100% of administrative expenses. Second, the
RRF’s housing mission speaks directly to the work we do as
REALTORS®. By assisting with victims’ housing costs in the
weeks and months following a disaster,
RRF helps consumers stay in their
communities and helps communities stay strong.

Sixteen years ago
today, the seeds of RRF were sown from the terrible Sept. 11, 2001,
terrorist attacks. (As we commemorate that tragic day, we can take pride
in the fact that RRF has since collected and distributed nearly $28
million in relief aid for more than 50 disasters in 34 states. (This video appeal from our friends
and fellow NAR leaders Elizabeth Mendenhall, Chris Polychron, and Kenny
Parcell recalls the start of our Foundation under Elizabeth’s father,
2001 NAR President Richard Mendenhall and 2002 NAR President Martin Edwards Jr.)

Please help us keep this important work going by making a
tax-deductible donation to the REALTORS® Relief Foundation. You can
do so in less than one minute using your credit card on our secure
online form
. Or you can send a check, payable to RRF, to REALTORS®
Relief Foundation, 430 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60611. Write
“RRF Contribution” in the memo line.

Your donation
today will benefit those who need help now. Let’s show those who
are hurting, and the entire nation, the spirit of compassion that runs
through the REALTOR® family. Thank you!
.
