KW Provides “Mega Relief” in Texas

Every year, Keller Williams holds an international seminar and training event known as Mega Camp. It was scheduled to be held from September 11-14th in Austin, TX, based at the convention center. When Hurricane Harvey made landfall in the weeks before, it became apparent that something would need to change this year.

Rather than cancel the event, it took on new life. Mega Camp became Mega Relief.

Thousands of KW agents and associates descended upon Austin, where 73 buses were staged to bring eager volunteers to areas hit by Harvey. Thirteen countries were represented, and in the first day alone, nearly 28,000 volunteer hours were logged working at 25 different sites.

Our team was honored to be represented by our agent Beth, who didn’t hesitate to roll up her sleeves and jump in to help.
