Federal Employee Group Thanks NAR

March 1, 2001

The Federal Employee Education & Assistance Fund recently honored NAR for its aid to surviving children of federal workers killed in the Oklahoma City federal building bombing.

Among those killed in the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building almost six years ago were 35 employees of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, leaving 50 children without one or both parents.

Since then, NAR has been funneling support through a nonprofit group called the Bollinger Foundation. Through its contributions to that foundation, which gives education funds to children who’ve lost parents, NAR has helped 23 of the Oklahoma City children go to college, FEEA says. NAR was one of several Bollinger Foundation supporters honored by FEEA in early February.

The Bollinger Foundation, named for a former HUD assistant secretary, targets its assistance to households in which one or both parents were involved or employed in housing or community development.
