NAR and Lowe’s Donate Relief Aid to Haiti
The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® and Lowe’s, a partner in NAR’s REALTOR Benefits® Program, are coming together to contribute relief to Haiti and the victims of the country’s recent earthquake. Together NAR and Lowe’s are leading the charge as Realtors® spread the awareness of good neighbors to those in desperate need.
NAR and Lowe’s will each contribute $100,000 to the REALTORS® Relief Foundation (RRF) which will distribute the money to charities aiding Haitian victims. RRF directors have already approved a donation of $50,000 of that money to The Harvest of Haiti, founded by a 2007 winner of REALTOR® Magazine’s Good Neighbor Awards, Patrick Moore. Moore’s humanitarian outreach program supports orphans, delivers clean water, and provides medical care in Haiti, treating close to 3,500 people a year. Lowe’s is a sponsor of the Good Neighbor Awards.
Moore, a sales associate with JoAnn Wine & Associates in Fort Gratiot, Mich., is planning his 64th trip to Haiti on January 29. While in Haiti, Moore and his team will deliver six months’ worth of food to an orphanage in Anse Rouge as well help residents in communities in and around Port-au-Prince.
“Patrick and The Harvest of Haiti represent the spirit of volunteerism,” says Mark Malone, vice president of Consumer Marketing at Lowe’s. “Lowe’s is proud of our association with the Good Neighbor Awards and we hope this support for REALTORS® providing relief in Haiti can help make a difference.”
REALTORS® are being encouraged to donate to Haitian victims through the REALTORS® Relief Foundation. All contributions will flow through the Foundation, and no Foundation money will go to NAR administrative costs. NAR members and others who wish to make a donation should go to the RRF portion of REALTOR.org and complete the contribution form.
Lowe’s and NAR have partnered to bring REALTORS® exclusive benefits to help build relationships with their customers, build referrals and build their client base. The benefits program is featured on the company’s REALTOR® benefits Web site. <a href="http://www.realtor.org/RMODaily.nsf/pages/News2010012101www.lowesrealtorbenefits.com” target=”new”> Lowe’s is a FORTUNE® 50 company with fiscal year 2008 sales of $48.2 billion and has more than 1,700 stores in the United States and Canada.
