SIOR is stepping up to support communities during the COVID-19 crisis. Today, SIOR is announcing the Community Assistance and Relief in Emergencies (CARE) program to provide immediate support for nonprofit and philanthropic services in need. Many organizations such as food banks, shelters, school food distribution centers, and emergency medical organizations, are in need of additional space to operate and meet the needs of their communities. As experts in commercial real estate with unmatched connections locally, regionally and across the world, SIORs are uniquely positioned to quickly find the space that these groups desperately need.
Through the CARE program, a nonprofit will be able to quickly engage with SIOR via a newly launched landing page - SIOR.COM/CARE. The user will be able to share contact information, their organization’s circumstances, and the specific needs not being met. From there, SIOR members within the appropriate geographical region will be quickly notified of the request and will be able to provide advice, contacts, or if applicable, direct the person to a property owner(s) who can help accommodate the group’s needs.
Through CARE, an organization searching for a commercial real estate space can quickly get up and running, helping their neighbors in a matter days or even hours.
If a community support group like those outlined above is in need of help, advice, or contacts that can provide assistance in locating an appropriate commercial space, they are encouraged to visit the CARE website today.
