Please Join Us in Donating to REALTORS for Relief from Hurricane Ida in Louisiana

August 31 2021

wav hurricane ida donateHurricane Ida, a Category 4 hurricane, delivered 150 mile per hour winds and set a path of destruction that killed four and left 1,000,000 without power in Louisiana. Hurricane Ida's winds were 30 MPH stronger than those of Hurricane Katrina.

The Realtors of the Northshore Area Board of REALTORS®, New Orleans Metropolitan Association of REALTORS®, Greater Baton Rouge Association of REALTORS® and Greater Southern MLS as well as Realtors in Mississippi felt the brunt of this natural disaster. The extraordinarily high winds literally made the Mississippi River flow upstream.

Realtors are in desperate need of our help to get their families to safety and then to begin the expensive and arduous task of rebuilding their homes and their businesses.

With the hottest real estate market in history, many Realtors and clients have lost thousands of potential transactions and billions of dollars in value.

Please join us in donating to the Louisiana REALTOR® Relief Program and the Hurricane Ida fund in the KWCares program.

If you haven't seen the devastation yet, take a minute to watch the following video HERE.

If you would like to help, there are several opportunities for you to donate:

1. Louisiana REALTORS® Relief Fund

Louisiana REALTORS® has set up a disaster relief fund that will provide much needed funding for victims of hurricanes and other natural disasters.

The Louisiana REALTORS® Relief Fund was established in 2005 as a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation dedicated to providing financial assistance to Realtor members and the consumers they serve in times of natural or man-made disasters. The Fund has provided indispensable assistance to the Realtor community since its implementation following the catastrophic effects of hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005. Those who have suffered extensive damages due to the occurrence of natural disasters can rely on the relief fund to assist in their recovery and rebuilding efforts. The funds delivered ensure property owners can once again enjoy the pride of ownership, Realtors are able to practice their trade, and communities are revitalized and strengthened.

Now the Louisiana REALTORS® Relief Fund are now going to be used to help Realtors recover from Hurricane Laura.
