DES PLAINES, Ill. (PRWEB) June 05, 2018
Des Plaines, Illinois: The National Remodeling Foundation (NRF) is pleased to announce a donation to Rebuilding Together of $7,330 as a result of our partnership with the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) in early 2018. The money is earmarked to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey and serves as yet another reminder of the impending hurricane season ahead.
“We are pleased to partner with NARI to raise funds to help people return to their homes as quickly as possible following the hurricane,” said Steve Kleber, President of the NRF. “It is important that funds go directly to the victims. Rebuilding Together provides an excellent conduit to ensure that as many people are helped as possible.”
Hurricane Harvey tore through parts of southeast Texas in late summer of 2017 leaving more than $125 billion in destruction in its wake. NARI has 4 chapters in Texas, serving the Houston, San Antonio, Dallas and Houston metropolitan areas, which were all either directly in Harvey’s path or provided immediate aid to displaced residents. Chapter leaders saw the need and asked NARI and the NRF to help raise funds.
The NRF and NARI members nationwide heard the call-to-action following landfall and launched a fundraising campaign in October, 2017, raising in excess of $7,000 through individual donations and chapter fundraisers.
