n August 2016, prolonged rainfall in southern parts of the U.S. state of Louisiana resulted in catastrophic flooding that submerged thousands of houses and businesses. Louisiana’s governor, John Bel Edwards, called the disaster a “historic, unprecedented flooding event” and declared a state of emergency. Many rivers and waterways, particularly the Amite and Comite rivers, reached record levels, and rainfall exceeded 20 inches in multiple parishes.
As a result, more than 130 Keller Williams associate’s homes were damaged by floodwater. KW Cares in partnership with local Keller Williams Leadership sprang into action to coordinate volunteers, supplies and equipment to restore the lives of affected associates. The effort resulted in in over $1 Million in emergency grants from KW Cares, hundreds of homes cleared of debris and prepped for renovation and more than 500 volunteers from around the United states traveling to help the efforts.
Keller Williams truly is family. The outpouring of love and support at such a trying time for my family is something I will remember for the rest of my life.
