Hurricane Harvey – What YOU Can Do

Dear Friends & Clients . . .

Thank you to those who have already reached out to us to see how you can help! It means a lot.

For those who don’t know, our company (Keller Williams Realty) is headquartered in Austin, Texas. This means we have thousands of agents in the Houston and surrounding areas that were hit by Hurricane Harvey. At present count, at least 300 of our agents (and thousands of other non KW folks) are out of their homes and many more severely impacted. 7,000 people will take refuge in Austin where many of us will be volunteering. Not only have they lost their homes, their pets and belongings – they will be impacted for months to come since their livelihood is dependent on the housing industry.

We have many personal friends who have been impacted. And many others who have been heroes, literally pulling people out of the water. One of many stories shared yesterday: “We finally found our cat. Floating by on a mattress.”

YOU CAN HELP.

Our company has an established 501(c)3 charity (KW Cares) with a long history and lots of experience in helping with disaster relief and recovery. We own multiple 18 wheelers for this purpose, the first of which arrived in Houston with supplies today. Rather than collecting water, clothing and other supplies, the best way you can help is to donate money. KW Cares is then able to buy in bulk. They are working closely with the Salvation Army & Red Cross, and will adjust what is purchased based on needs as they change day by day. 100% of all donations go to disaster relief. (All admin costs are personally handled by our Chairman Gary Keller and Vice Chairman of the Board Mo Anderson).

A Day Without . . . . .

Imagine a day without coffee . . .

A Day Without Coffee

Ok – maybe that’s not too hard.

But what about a day without coffee, diapers, toothpaste, soap, sugar, laundry detergent, toilet paper and a host of other “basics”?!

Please join The Belt Team and Keller Williams McLean on Thursday as we celebrate KELLER WILLIAMS RED DAY by collecting food & toiletries to replenish the shelves at SHARE of McLean.

McLean Community Service

RED Day (Renew, Energize and Donate) is a worldwide Keller Williams Realty service initiative. Thousands of Keller Williams Realtors and staff members will be donating their time, talent & treasure on May 14th in an effort to help our local communities. You see, at Keller Williams, it’s our motto to “give where we live.” And at The Belt Team – our Mission Statement is “Changing Lives for the Better” – and that doesn’t just apply to real estate!

Tom Francis & Christy Belt Grossman McLean Community Service

Our local McLean office will participate in a drive to benefit SHARE of McLean. SHARE was established in 1969 by a coalition of religious and civic institutions to meet the emergency needs of the less fortunate in McLean, Great Falls, Pimmit Hills and surrounding areas. . And yes – they DO exist in our area. Many of them work 2, 3 & more jobs to survive – jobs that often serve the more affluent residents in our area. Share also serves a large number of seniors who just can’t meet their own needs. Last year they served over 2,500 families (more than 7,500 people).

Share is sustained by donations of food, clothing, furniture and funds, and is administered by ALL volunteers. Agents from our McLean/Great Falls Keller Williams office (including members of The Belt Team) will be outside the McLean Giant. We will be collecting groceries and donations on behalf of SHARE. Look for our tent!
