Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage invites neighbors to join the effort to raise funds for those impacted by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey by donating to one of two campaigns, the Realogy Disaster Relief Fund (RDRF) and the Realogy Foundation’s Florida Hurricane Fund.
“Our neighbors were hit hard by Hurricane Harvey and Irma, and need all the support they can get to rebuild and re-establish a sense of normalcy,” said Mike James, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Northern California. “These two fundraising efforts will help us aid those within our own Coldwell Banker network and the families of Houston and Florida.”
Funds are being collected through the Realogy Charitable Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) public charity supporting the philanthropic and volunteer activities of Realogy Holdings Corp. The sole purpose of RDRF, is to provide direct financial assistance to affected employees and sales agents affiliated with a Realogy franchised or company-owned real estate brokerage office (e.g., as a broker, sales agent or employee) including Coldwell Banker. Donations to RDRF are tax-deductible and will be used to help those affected to address some of their emergency financial needs not covered by insurance. Donate to the Realogy Disaster Relief Fund or visit www.events.org/rdrf for more information.
The Realogy Foundation’s Florida Hurricane Fund was organized to support all victims affected by Hurricane Irma. The proceeds of this campaign will benefit the American National Red Cross. Donate to the Florida Hurricane Fund or visit www.events.org/flhurricane for more information.
Realogy has additionally announced a company gift to match the first $75,000 donated to either the company’s new Disaster Relief Fund for employees and affiliated agents, or to its foundation’s Florida Hurricane Fund
To date, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage affiliated agents and employees, along with Realogy colleagues, have contributed approximately $340,000 to the American Red Cross to support impacted areas in Texas.
