TRAR, Illini Valley lend help to nearby tornado victims

Illini Valley Association of REALTORS® CEO Gail Pyszka receives a stack of VISA gift cards from Three Rivers Association of REALTORS® CEO David McClintock.

The Three Rivers Association of REALTORS® (TRAR) and the Illini Valley Association of REALTORS® are working together to supplement assistance given by the American Red Cross and other relief organizations to victims of last week’s tornadoes in LaSalle County.

TRAR donated $500 in VISA cards and delivered them to Illini Valley last weekend. Illini Valley CEO Gail Pyszka thanked TRAR CEO David McClintock and President Matt Persicketti for the speed of the donation.

Three Rivers was very generous. They drove down with $500 in gift cards,” Pyszka said.

“Having been through two terrible tornadoes in the last three years, we were certain they could use the funds immediately,” said McClintock.

“We have been distributing applications for disaster relief from the Illinois REALTORS® Relief Foundation at the Multi Agency Resource Center (MARC) in Ottawa, as well as 80 Wal-Mart gift cards Illinois REALTORS® donated. Illini Valley members donated gift cards too.”

Several Illini Valley REALTORS® living in the affected area had damage to their homes and property, she said.
