Illinois REALTORS® leadership has approved a $10,000 donation to help those affected by hurricanes which ravaged the U.S. Virgin Islands in September.
In all, Illinois REALTORS® has donated $135,000 this year to assist with recovery from hurricanes Irma, Maria and Harvey.
The association has a long history of pitching in to help colleagues and residents in disaster areas. Its members donated heavily in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and after the 9-11 terrorist attacks.
In addition to responding to the hurricanes, Illinois REALTORS® has distributed nearly $79,000 for flood victims through its disaster relief foundation, Illinois REALTORS® Relief.
