On January 6th, myself and other Ebby agents from across North Texas, assisted in cleaning up neighborhoods that were affected by the recent tornadoes. The devastation I saw will never leave me! I never thought in a million years that clients I once helped to find a home and start their dreams, I would have to one day help them pick up the pieces. This is an experience that humbled me to my core.
We called ourselves “Team Ebby!” We consisted of approximately 80 agents, as well as some staff from our affiliated Title and Mortgage companies. Some duties for clean-up included: removing broken glass, nails and shingles; removing fences and soiled carpet; walking the neighborhood to ask different homeowners what they need. Sometimes all they needed was a shoulder to cry on.
Operation Blessing International (Disaster Relief Services) is the non-profit organization that coordinated Team Ebby. Their main mission during a disaster is to supply meals, lodging, equipment, work order coordination and more. They are always in need of volunteers, so if you would like to learn more about them and possibly sign up to be a part of their team, then just click on this link: http://www.operationblessing.org/volunteer/.
