Help with Housing After the Hurricanes

Update:  We reached our goal of donating $10,358 from the Berkshires!  Awesome show of heart, REALTORS.  Thank you.  Donations are still needed so if you haven’t contributed to help yet, please do and we will keep updating our totals.

The Board of Directors considered a request for help from the Realtor Relief Fund, a foundation that was formed after 9-11 to provide housing relief to families affected by disaster.  Now more than ever, temporary and emergency housing (and mortgage assistance when unable to work) is critical to so many Americans in hurricane affected regions. The need is so great, and 100% of the dollars raised go directly to community members in need of housing stability during this time of crisis.  Our Board wanted to do more than the contribution requested, so they declared they would match up to $5,000 in donations made by Berkshire Realtors – for a potential of $10,000 to the cause if we reach our goal.  And our leaders led by example… throwing dollars, writing checks and going online, in just a few hours they have personally contributed over $2,300, for a total of $4,700 tally so far.  We need you to help too.  No donation is too small (or too big 😉 so please join us in helping house, for even a little bit, those in desperate need.
