TAMPA – In the aftermath of the devastation and widespread destruction caused by Hurricane Irma in the Tampa Bay area, Domain Homes has raised and donated $65,000 to the #FloridaStrong telethon that raised money to help storm victims.
After the storm made landfall in Florida on Sept. 10 as a Category 2 hurricane in Tampa Bay, WFLA News Channel 8 partnered with the American Red Cross to raise funds for disaster relief in Florida. The money is intended to help people in the Tampa Bay area who got displaced by the storm or have been left without power.
As a result, Domain Homes, the urban renaissance new home builder, quickly responded by making a pledge of $25,000 to the telethon.
Domain Homes reaches out after Hurricane Irma
In addition, the builder also reached out by email to their employees, Realtor partners, tradesmen they work with, and even homeowners who have purchased their homes, encouraging them to do whatever they can to support the ongoing relief efforts.
“Domain Homes has pledged $25,000 already. In addition to that, if anyone calls in a donation and mentions Domain Homes, we will match it,” the builder noted in the email. “This is a tremendous way for us to give back and support our community. Just think, any amount that is donated is going to be doubled. That’s a big deal!”
Most importantly, over the course of the next week, that amount increased to $65,000.
Originally a Category 5 storm, Hurricane Irma made landfill in Key West as a Category 4 hurricane and swept across the length of the state, causing considerable damage and widespread power outages.
And there was flooding in some Tampa areas, and plenty of trees toppled onto roadways.
A Way to Help Victims is Established
Due to that storm, WFLA set up the telethon to aid families suffering in the aftermath of Irma. Within 15 hours, the telethon had raised more than $1,117,000 for Hurricane Irma victims, including the $25,000 donation from Domain Homes.
And in making the donation, Domain Homes noted that the company has been building homes in the area for a long time and was committed to the people of Tampa Bay, and this was a way of giving back to them.
Also, anyone who missed the telethon but still wants to make a donation to the Red Cross can visit the WFLA website and click on the “Red Cross” banner at the top of the page, or call 1-800-REDCROSS (800-733-2767). All money raised will go toward disaster relief efforts.
Domain Homes has been building homes in the Tampa Bay area for years. The company procures home sites in Tampa Bay’s most sought-after neighborhoods. That includes South Tampa, West Tampa, North Hyde Park, the Heights, and St. Petersburg.
Since these neighborhoods are close to highly-rated schools, shopping, cultural attractions, downtown Tampa, and the nearby beaches, they are among the most sought-after in the region.
