“I am asking you to join us in this effort with your personal donation of any amount to the REALTORS® Relief Foundation,” Brown said.

The foundation assists with some housing costs. NAR handles all of the charitable funds administrative expenses.

IAR and its member associations have raised more than $60,000, and that number is expected to climb rapidly in the coming days. Member associations have sent numerous truckloads of supplies into the affected areas.

Several state associations have reached out to IAR to express interest in giving to disaster relief.
