After Hurricane Harvey struck in mid-August, some of the industry’s biggest names stepped up to help with relief. Keller Williams International’s charity arm, KW Cares, sent three 18-wheelers packed with generators, nonperishable food, diapers, cleaning supplies, wheelbarrows, flashlights and more.
Realogy originally pledged to match up to $50,000 for Red Cross Hurricane Harvey relief for funds raised via the Realogy Charitable Foundation. After passing that goal, the company increased its total match to $75,000.
On the local level, Coldwell Banker’s D’Ann Harper in Texas launched a fundraiser in concert with the American Red Cross to help families by raising funds, volunteering and working with local shelters.
Exit Realty Corp. International was another large real estate player to step up, announcing Aug. 30 that it would donate a total of $300,000 to the hardest hit by Hurricane Harvey.
