In the wake of the Hill and Woolsey fires in Southern California, we are actively working to help in every way we can. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you are looking for a new home or lease.
We are also proud to support everyone in Malibu with Douglas Elliman that has launched a HUGE campaign to help both the victims and the firefighters and first responders who are putting their lives on the line to protect our communities. The areas of California affected are places in which many of our friends, family members, colleagues, and clients live and work so we are preparing a number of ways for each of us to help. Below is our first call to action.
Through the Douglas Elliman Foundation, we have organized an opportunity to help those affected and in need. And because the situation is so dire, we have decided to match, dollar-for-dollar, every contribution made to the foundation up to $100,000.
The funds collected will be divided amongst the following non-profit organizations:
California Fire Foundation (“Cal Fire”)
A nonprofit founded by California Professional Firefighters, Cal Fire provides support for firefighters and the families of those who have died while at work. This assistance comes in the form of emergency funding for these impacted families, community improvement programs, and maintaining a statue dedicated to fallen firefighters at the State Capitol in Sacramento.
The United Way’s Disaster Relief Fund
A fund created by the United Way’s arms in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties to help those impacted by the Hill and Woolsey Fires and other natural disasters in Southern California.
The American Red Cross
The Red Cross has hundreds of workers providing shelter, food, relief supplies and comfort to residents forced from their homes, and it coordinates the efforts of other national and local agencies large and small, enabling an effective response to the California Wildfires.
Please be assured that your donation to the foundation, which is tax deductible, is in safe hands and will go directly to help victims in need and first responders.
As always, we are grateful for your generosity and look forward to making a significant impact with your help.
