On August 10th, a disastrous derecho storm caused a great amount of damage to eastern Iowa. Many homes were damaged, people were left without power for weeks, and communities were shut down for cleanup. With our community in such need, Iowa City Area Association of REALTORS reached out to organizations to help get these communities on their feet again.
Iowa City Area Association of REALTORS donated $2,500 to the United Way of Johnson & Washington Counties. United Way helped families and individuals who were facing losses due to the storm by providing a 24/7, free hotline.
We also donated $2,500 to the Iowa Giving Crew. The Iowa Giving Crew used their donations to help eastern Iowans get food, shelter, and help cover cleanup expenses.
