As the world watches the devastation that is occurring in Haiti in the aftermath of the hurricane, many individuals and companies are coming together in an effort to help and provide aid to those in need. One such partnership includes Florida Realtors and the National Association of Realtors making a contribution in collecting donations to send to Haiti.
"We have all been deeply touched by the horrific damage and loss of life caused by the earthquake in Haiti. It is truly incomprehensible how the Haitian people are suffering," says Florida Realtors President Wendell Davis.
The leadership team in Florida, which is headed by Davis, came together to contribute $10,000 toward Haiti and to the National Association of Realtors' Relief Foundation.
In addition to those funds, Florida Realtors will attempt to collect individual donations when their Mid-Winter Business Meetings are help from January 20 - 24 at Orlando, Florida's Renaissance Resort. The fund is said to be collecting checks and cash, but no credit cards. The contributions can be made at the event's registration desk and all funds will be given to the National Association of Realtors' Relief Fund.
"It is in challenging situations such as this that Realtors come together to, once again, show that their compassion and devotion to community are unmatched," says Davis.
