An Express Article from the California Land Title Association
Bulletin 12/13-99 - May 23, 2013
As you all know, the tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma, earlier this week has left the town to deal with an almost unimaginable level of devastation. Every member of the Moore community, including those involved in the business of title insurance, was affected by this tragedy in some way. CLTA leadership has become aware of a growing effort on the part of the title insurance industry, led by the Oklahoma Land Title Association (OLTA), to assist with helping those most in need of aid.
We encourage those individuals who wish to donate to do so using a PayPal link set up by OLTA, or by sending a pledged amount to Kathy Fields-Smith with OLTA at firstname.lastname@example.org. Persons wishing to make a pledge are asked to email Kathy your pledge amount before sending a check to: Oklahoma Land Title Association, PO Box 1544, Oklahoma City, OK 73101. OLTA will use pledged amounts to quickly disburse funds rather than waiting for the arrival of actual checks. OLTA is willing to provide invoices for those who would prefer to process pledges through a corporate accounts payable system. Please contact Kathy for OLTA invoice requests.
OLTA plans to use collected funds to provide aid to two members of the land title industry who have suffered complete losses of their homes – one family is with Abstract and Guaranty of Lincoln County and the other family is with American Eagle Title Insurance. Part of the funds will also be given to the general relief Moore/Shawnee Tornado Fund set up by the Tulsa Community Foundation. Get more information on this fund at http://tulsacf.org/.
Here are other places OLTA has identified that are providing assistance:
