BRR Contributes $1,000 to Aid CA Wildfire Victims

The Boise Regional REALTORS® (BRR) Board of Directors donated $1,000 to the California Association of REALTORS® (CAR) Disaster Relief Fund to assist REALTOR® members and association staff who were impacted by the devastating destruction caused by the recent California wildfires.

The fires that demolished parts of Northern California wine country claimed dozens of lives and destroyed thousands of residential and commercial buildings.

“It’s heartbreaking see all of the footage and photos that have come out of the fire-stricken areas,” said Katrina Wehr, 2017 President of Boise Regional REALTORS® and Associate Broker with Keller Williams Realty Boise. “Lives were lost, homes and businesses were completely consumed, and we feel like it’s our duty as REALTORS® to help in some way.”

REALTORS® Donate $1,000 to Assist Those Affected by Harvey

The BRR Board of Directors donated $1,000 to the REALTORS® Relief Foundation (RRF) to help cover housing-related expenses for those caught in the wake of Hurricane Harvey’s devastation in southern Texas and Louisiana.

The tropical storm brought with it 100 mph winds, historic rainfall, and catastrophic flooding — damaging homes and displacing more than a million people.

“REALTORS® support each other and the communities in which we live and work, here at home and across the country,” said Katrina Wehr, 2017 President of Boise Regional REALTORS® and REALTOR® with Keller Williams Realty Boise.  “We want to do our part to help those who have been uprooted and have endured the unimaginable.”

BRR is joined by the Intermountain Multiple Listing Service and Idaho REALTORS®, as well as individual REALTORS®, in donating to the REALTORS® Relief Foundation. The overhead costs of running the foundation are covered by the National Association of REALTORS®, so 100 percent of donations go directly to victims of disaster. More information about the RRF is available at nar.realtor.
