REALTORS® Donate to Those Impacted by Local Tragedies

Thank you, Boise Regional REALTORS® (BRR) members, for stepping up and supporting the families hurt in the brutal attack at a child’s birthday party several weeks ago. Because of your generous donations, the REALTORS® Community Foundation was able to make a $10,000 online contribution to the International Rescue Committee (IRC). While we are still heartbroken and discouraged by this tragic event, we are grateful that our REALTOR® family was able to join together, along with a long list of other organizations and individuals, and demonstrate that our community is one that helps others in need and will not be defined by senseless acts of violence.

A very special thank you to Thayne Barrie, REALTOR® with Coldwell Banker Tomlinson Group, and First Story, the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Hayden Homes, for each making generous contributions of $1,000. While all donations are appreciated and were matched by the foundation, these two really helped move the needle toward reaching our goal of raising $10,000.

And in honor of the injured Meridian Police Officer — who is also the husband of one of our REALTOR® members – BRR made a separate donation of $1,500 to the Fraternal Order of Police Treasure Valley Lodge Foundation/Benevolent Fund.
