NRMLA Member Announcement: California Fire Relief Fund

The team at Allegiant Reverse Services is trying to help families impacted by the California fires. They asked NRMLA if we could distribute the following notice to members. 

NRMLA Staff

By now everyone is aware of the magnitude of the damage caused by the fires in California.  Our industry is rooted in the shared mission of helping seniors by aging in place and improving their lives by helping to provide financial security. The Camp Fire has threatened the safety and security of thousands of seniors who have lost their personal belongings, their homes and the lives of some of their loved ones. All of us at Allegiant Reverse Services (ARS) have come together to try and help in any way we can by adopting a senior, donating supplies, clothes, toys and we have scheduled multiple ARS teams to head up to Chico, CA to help wherever it’s needed.

We have seen firsthand the generosity and community spirit of the reverse mortgage industry and we’re asking for you to join us in helping the senior population in Butte County.  Allegiant Reverse Services (ARS) has started by helping one senior relocate to her new home.

Together we can, and we will do more! ARS has chosen Paradise Alliance Church because of their focus on the senior community. They are a part of the 5% of the structures that survived the fire that wiped out the the town of Paradise. Their church will be used as a hub for the rebuilding efforts and they need help. They are working directly with more than 600 members who are seniors to assess their needs, and with our donations they will be in a better position to do so. We are directing the money to go towards helping pay for lodging for seniors who have lost their homes.

You may donate directly to Paradise Alliance Church through this GoFundMe account.
