Daily Real Estate News  |  May 26, 2011  |   NAR Commences Another Round of Tornado Relief
Following the devastation in Joplin, Mo., and several other cities in the Midwest and Southern U.S., the National Association of REALTORSŪ has announced the REALTORSŪ Relief Foundation (RRF) will provide financial assistance to organizations in those areas to help with clean-up and reconstruction.

This donation follows another recent tornado-related contribution from the RRF, prompted by a cluster of twisters that cut a swath across other southern states, most notably Alabama, less than a month ago.

To further assist the people affected by the devastation caused by those tornados, an appeal went out yesterday to members from NAR President Ron Phipps for more contributions.

“REALTORSŪ and state and local associations opened their hearts and stood tall when our nation was attacked on 9/11, and when Katrina struck Louisiana and Mississippi,” Phipps wrote. “Now it is time for the REALTORŪ family to stand tall again. Your donation to the REALTORSŪ Relief Foundation (RRF) will directly help those who have lost so much. We are gearing up to send disaster assistance to Missouri, even as we continue our goal of helping the southeastern states who have endured the unimaginable.”

Learn more about NAR’s involvement in disaster relief in areas affected by tornados and contribute to assistance efforts via the RRF. Also, for assistance specifically to Joplin, Mo., read this online letter from Missouri Association of REALTORSŪ President Joyce Thomas on making a donation to that state’s relief fund.
