Hurricane Harvey has left a path of destruction in its wake and it is going take time, help and faith to recover, rebuild and restore the areas that have been devastated. It’s also going to take money and supplies. That’s where RE/MAX, LLC is stepping in to rally for support through the RE/MAX Million Dollar Match.
According to RE/MAX CEO’s Adam Contos and Dave Liniger, “RE/MAX has roughly 90 offices and 2,500 associates who’ve been hit by the storm. We’ve checked that every associate has been accounted for, and thankfully, all RE/MAX associates in the area are reported as safe. Each member of the RE/MAX family are very much in our thoughts and prayers.”
Initially RE/MAX, LLC contributed $50,000 to the Red Cross to help aid in immediate relief efforts. Now that the storm has passed RE/MAX is asking its affiliated offices and associates to contribute to make a difference. For every dollar raised Dave and Gail Liniger will match all donations up to $1 million dollars. The RE/MAX Million Dollar Match will directly help RE/MAX offices and agents affected by Hurricane Harvey. Please take a look at the GoFundMe page set up for this fundraising project.
RE/MAX of Texas has also provided a list of organizations where you can donate money or much needed supplies:
Storm Warriors: A devoted group of Texas-based individuals who track storms, and assist and restore communities.
ARC (Associated Related Churches): A nationwide community of churches who have joined together to send money and supplies for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Texas Association of Realtors Relief Fund: Helps agents and individuals who've suffered losses due to natural disasters in Texas.
