Keller Williams Realty St. Pete is raising funds for those affected by the recent natural disasters, Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria and the Earthquakes in Mexico
Keller Williams (KW) Realty St. Pete is raising money for Keller Williams Realty International’s (KWRI) nonprofit organization, KW Cares. KW Cares has implemented a campaign, Red Relief and has a goal to raise $20 million for those affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria and the earthquakes in Mexico. KW Cares steps in to help KW associates and their families experiencing a hardship as a result of a sudden emergency. KWRI’s Realtors and staff have donated over $7.6 million to help those affected by the three hurricanes and two earthquakes in Mexico.
Natural disasters – such as the earthquakes in Mexico and Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria – disrupt life as we know it. People become displaced and isolated. Schools are being utilized as shelters, displacing students at every level of education. Many are still recovering from Hurricane Harvey while victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico haven’t begun to see a resolution.
The first step KW Cares takes after disaster strikes is to send its convoy of semis with equipment, supplies and volunteers to the areas most impacted. Natural disasters that destroy the housing market are especially damaging to all. The real estate market may cease to exist, causing a dramatic change in the economy until a normal routine is restored. Monetary donations to KW Cares will contribute toward food, clothing, water and building supplies for those in the affected communities.
Many KWRI associates have made an impressive impact through their on-the-ground relief efforts in Florida, Puerto Rico Texas and Mexico. In Texas they helped others replace their homes while those in Mexico have provided food and supplies.
Keller Williams Realty St. Pete has committed to raising $35,000, or $125 per associate, for KW Cares. Furthermore, Keller Williams Realty St. Pete has “adopted” a family from Texas that is a part of the KW Houston office. Keller Williams Realty St. Pete is supporting this family with emotional support, supplies and monetary donations to rebuild their home.
