GLVAR donates cash to California Realtors
The Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors has donated $15,000 to the California Association of Realtors’ disaster relief fund to help people displaced because of wildfires in Southern California.
“Very few of us realize what it’s like to lose everything, and we’ll do what we can to help people in Southern California,” said Devin Reiss, GLVAR president. “This is the second donation that our organization has given to help people who have lost their homes because of wildfires. In August, we donated $5,000 to the South Tahoe Association of Realtors to help after fires burned homes in Lake Tahoe.”
To contribute, send checks or money orders made payable to the California Community Foundation to 445 S. Figueroa St., No. 3400, Los Angeles, CA. 90071-1638. Please write “CAR disaster relief fund” on the memo line on all checks. Online donations can be made at www.calfund.org.
