Hurricane Harvey has devastated, not only the citizens and homeowners of south Texas and Louisiana, but the entire nation. I don’t know about you, but as I watch the news reports and social media updates, I can’t help but feel sadness and grief for the victims and families, but I also feel so powerless and not sure what I can to do to help.
However, thanks to our REALTOR® family, NAR and Illinois REALTORS®, there are so many ways we can help! I am sure you have received the emails from our REALTOR® family this week. I thought I would consolidate that information and give you one email to have all of your outreach options in one place. Whether it is by making a donation, collecting supplies, or simply by praying – any act…big or small helps the cities affected by Hurricane Harvey to get back on their feet.
It’s also important to note that we currently have a CALL FOR ACTION from NAR to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program. Writing our lawmakers and asking them to vote to continue this program will go a long way in helping flood victims.
Thank you for your compassion and prayers for these victims and their families
