Hurricane Harvey – How can you help?

A personal share from Lennox Scott:

Hurricane Harvey hit Texas on Friday as a terrifying category 4 hurricane – one of the biggest to batter the US mainland in more than a decade. The deadly storm ravaged the Gulf Coast with storm surges, flash flooding, and devastating winds. The hurricane has now been downgraded to a tropical storm and, as of today, nine people have died, but the rains continue.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims.  Once the rains recede and the immediate life-threatening conditions abate, it will take years for the people of Texas to recover from the devastation.  Please consider helping out, if not through the REALTOR® Relief Foundation,than through some other relief organization.    download-1
