The stories of courage, compassion and conviction that our Oklahoma associates have shared since the EF 5 tornado struck the community of Moore, Okla., on May 20 have been overwhelming. One such story is illustrated by this powerful picture, where Stephanie Walker (pictured right) is seen handing money she found to John Sacotte, who lost his home. Walker is the daughter of Keller Williams Realty Green Meadow associate Sandi Walker. Together they looked for any valuables from Sacotte’s home.
Thanks to Keller Williams associates’ generous support, KW Cares, Keller Williams Realty’s non-profit, has been able to award $95,000 in grants to associates and family members whose lives were upended by this storm’s devastation. Many market centers and regions have also sent gift cards and other resources to assist our brothers and sisters in need. We especially want to thank those of you who have made a direct financial contribution. To date, our Moore fund has raised more than $32,000 for immediate disaster assistance.
Recovery is always a long road, and friends in Oklahoma still need our help. Please consider making a donation today. (Be sure to specify “Oklahoma tornadoes” in the “This is a donation” field.) If the fund generates contributions above and beyond what our grant recipients need, KW Cares will use the remaining funds to support others in need consistent with our mission.
One of the hallmarks of the Keller Williams culture is our associates’ deep commitment to helping those in need. Thank you for answering the call once again!
