Disaster - MS - April 13-14, 2019

posted: 04/17/2019
This past Saturday, tornadoes and flash flooding hit a number of communities in our state.  The Mississippi REALTORS® Disaster Relief Fund is a charitable organization which was established in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to assist with recovery from disaster from Tupelo to Louisville, Hattiesburg, Woodville and the Mississippi Coast. We have also had the privilege of assisting disaster victims in other states, giving back to others who generously poured money into Mississippi after Katrina.

The Fund is designed to help victims of disasters with damage to primary residences. If you are aware of individuals in your community who have suffered damage to their home and might qualify for assistance, please contact your Local Board or contact Beth Hansen at MAR (bhansen@msrealtors.org) for an application.

To ensure funds remain available to help victims of future disasters in Mississippi and elsewhere, you may make a tax-deductible contribution to our Mississippi REALTORS® Disaster Relief Fund here: msrealtors.org/disaster-relief-fund. A log-in is required, and you'll also need to click on the "Modify" link to enter the amount you wish to contribute before clicking through to pay with your credit card.

Thank you for your generous support!
