Three REALTOR® organizations joined together July 5 to announce a pledge of $25,000 in assistance for those affected by flooding in Jersey and Calhoun counties.
The donation was announced at a press conference in Godfrey, one of the communities which sustained damage in the floods. The donation was made by Greater Gateway Association of REALTORS®, Illinois REALTORS® and Mid America Regional Information Systems.
“REALTORS® are every local community’s biggest proponent, and odds are a REALTOR® helped these people find their home and we want to help them protect it,” Mark Massey, immediate past president of GGAR, told the Alton Telegraph.
A form has been set up for set up for residents of the two counties to apply for aid administered through the Illinois REALTORS® Relief Foundation, the state REALTORS® association disaster assistance arm. The form can be accessed here, along with the details of the program.
