Gardner Realtors Distributes Care Packages For Tornado Victims

NEW ORLEANS – Immediately following the tornado outbreak on Tuesday, Feb. 7, Gardner Realtors responded with a grassroots effort to collect donations for tornado victims through its “Gardner Love Anything Drive.”

         Realtors in 23 local Gardner offices across the metro New Orleans area coordinated donations, collecting thousands of items including clean clothes, shoes, cleaning supplies, food, water and monetary donations. Realty reps said thanks to the generosity of the local community and a partnership with Pur[SHOE]ing Joy, Gardner was able to put together more than 100 care packages for New Orleans East tornado victims.

         “The comfort of a safe place to call home is something everyone should have and many take for granted,” Crystal Gardner said. “Gardner Realtors is committed to giving back to the local community. Like a good neighbor, we are committed to helping pick up the pieces when our fellow community members’ homes and lives are devastated by natural disasters.”

         The Gardner team collaborated with Pur[SHOE]ing Joy to set up a pick up station for care packages at Gardner’s New Orleans East office on Valentine’s Day. Realtors also went out into the surrounding neighborhood, delivering care packages and essentials in person to individuals and families whose homes had been damaged or destroyed.

         For more than 72 years, Gardner Realtors has served as a full-service real estate company in the Metro New Orleans, Greater Baton Rouge and Mississippi Gulf Coast Region by adhering to its founding principle – The Golden Rule. Gertrude Gardner started the company on this simple idea, which still guides operations today, reps said. Gardner is dedicated to giving back to the local community and has partnered with the New Orleans Mission through The Gertrude Gardner Foundation to end homelessness in our area, reps said. Today, under family leadership, Gardner Realtors continues to uphold Gertrude Gardner’s four-generation tradition of providing the best quality real estate services while holding true to their beliefs, reps said.
