Local realtor gives vehicle to Riverside flood victims
Tyler and Chelsea McKee with CC Underwood

CC Underwood, leader of The Sellin’ With CC Team of Keller Williams Jacksonville Realty, loved her 2006 Toyota 4Runner and, after getting another vehicle, thought she would use the SUV for work.

After seeing the devastation Hurricane Irma created in the Historic District, Underwood saw the potential for something much more meaningful.

Tyler and Chelsea McKee’s car was totaled by Hurricane Irma.

“Being a Jacksonville-based team, it was hard to see the damage that was caused to our community,” said Underwood. “We realize that so many lost so much and we believe that when you have, you give…and we wanted to gift a car.”

Underwood ran a contest offering to give the 4Runner to someone who lost their primary vehicle due to Irma. After Underwood’s team narrowed down the seven entries, the finalist was required to show proof from their insurance company their vehicle was a total loss.

The lucky winners were Tyler and Chelsea McKee, who live in Riverside, and are expecting a baby. The vehicle was presented to the McKees Oct. 11 at their home.

“You really cannot say that any one person deserved it more because losing a primary vehicle can mean a loss of much more to a household,” said Savannah Zuber, director of operations with The Sellin’ With CC Team. “After reviewing the stories several team members including myself were drawn to one. We just had a feeling.”
