Realtors Collect over $70,000 for Bomb Relief

Article excerpt

More than $70,000 has been collected for victims of the Oklahoma City bombing by the Oklahoma Association of Realtors and Oklahoma City Metropolitan Association of Realtors Inc. Shortly after the downtown blast on April 19, both Realtor associations began receiving phone calls from people in other states wanting to help.

The state association coordinated with the National Association of Realtors to route all donations through the state and local associations.

"Donations just started pouring in. We had contributions from $5 all the way up to $10,000," said Jack Mowdy, president of the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Association. One Realtors' association in New York planted a Dogwood tree in a children's playground in memory of the children killed in Oklahoma City.

The money collected will go to various relief organizations, including Feed the Children, the Governor's fund, the American Red Cross and the Federal Employees Emergency Assistance program. The Realtor associations also gathered food and other assistance for the Housing and Urban Development employees in Oklahoma City. Rose State Plans 25th Anniversary Open House
