Healthy Food Drive Concludes with 60,819 Pounds of Donated Food
BALTIMORE (May 26, 2016)—Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s annual 10-day campaign to collect non-perishable, nutritious food for Baltimore area food pantries came to a close on May 8.
Agents, clients, employees, and members of the community participated by dropping off food to a Coldwell Banker® branch office or to a Coldwell Banker open house. At the end of the campaign, Coldwell Banker distributed the donations to regional food pantries. Among all Coldwell Banker Mid-Atlantic offices, 60,819 pounds of food were donated to local food pantries.
The need for food donations is dire over the summer months as supplies have been depleted from winter and after Easter. Many children who depend on government-subsidized breakfast and lunch programs at their school do not have access to healthy meals during the summer school break.
The Healthy Food Drive is unique in its focus on nutritious foods. Oftentimes, low-income families do not have access to healthy foods that support children’s needs and development.
“I’m very humbled to see all the donations and support that came in for the Healthy Food Drive,” said Dean Cottrill, president, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Mid-Atlantic. “Our goal was to surpass last year’s donations and we did that by 2,109 pounds. The generosity of so many donors is very much appreciated.”
