Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate invites neighbors to join the effort to raise funds for those impacted by Hurricane Irma by donating to the Realogy Foundation’s Florida Hurricane Fund.
Funds are being collected through the Realogy Charitable Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) public charity supporting the philanthropic and volunteer activities of Realogy Holdings Corp.
The Realogy Foundation’s Florida Hurricane Fund was organized to support all victims affected by Hurricane Irma. The proceeds of this campaign will benefit the American National Red Cross. Donate to the Florida Hurricane Fund or visit www.events.org/flhurricane for more information.
Realogy additionally established the Realogy Disaster Relief Fund (RDRF). The sole purpose of RDRF, is to provide direct financial assistance to affected employees and sales agents affiliated with a Realogy franchised or company-owned real estate brokerage office (e.g., as a broker, sales agent or employee), including Coldwell Banker, who were affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Donations to RDRF are tax-deductible and will be used to help those affected to address some of their emergency financial needs not covered by insurance. Donate to the Realogy Disaster Relief Fund or visit www.events.org/rdrf for more information.
Realogy has additionally announced a company gift to match the first $75,000 donated to either the company’s new Disaster Relief Fund for employees and affiliated agents, or to its foundation’s Florida Hurricane Fund.
To date, Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate affiliated agents and employees, along with Realogy colleagues, have contributed approximately $340,000 to the American Red Cross to support impacted areas in Texas.
Locally, Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate sales associates in offices from the panhandle, Sarasota and Orlando have gathered supplies for those affected by Hurricane Irma. Delivery trucks are scheduled to drop off food, water, gasoline and monetary donations to Naples, Marco Island and southeast Florida. Donations will benefit employees, affiliated agents and local non-profits.
“Our thoughts and best wishes go to the thousands who have been devastated by these storms,” said Clark Toole, president Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate. “Through this effort, we are assisting families and children in obtaining the much needed comforts they have lost.”
