A total of 45 Coldwell Banker offices in Northern California are serving as official collection centers for new, unwrapped toys for needy children, the company said in a news release.
U.S. Marine Corps Reserve members will pick up the toys from each collection center and deliver them to charitable organizations and social welfare agencies in the area in time for the holidays, the release added.
The public is also encouraged to donate new and gently used winter items for the homeless and needy in their local communities as part of the One Warm Coat drive.
A total of 32 Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices will act as donation collection centers for coats, sweaters, jackets, sweatshirts, hats, mittens, towels and blankets, according to the company. Donations will be sent to local organizations benefiting those in need.
“Our annual Toys for Tots and One Warm Coat collections gives our agents, staff and members of the community an opportunity to come together to help those most in need,” said Rick Turley, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “We look forward to these campaigns each winter because it’s a gift for us to be able to make the holidays a little brighter for thousands of families. We encourage the public to join us by donating new, unwrapped toys and warm clothing that will undoubtedly bring smiles to so many faces.”
