COLDWELL BANKER RESIDENTIAL BROKERAGE DONATES SCHOOL SUPPLIES TO THE GUIDANCE CENTER

WALTHAM, Mass. – The offices of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in New England recently collected and donated school supplies for The Guidance Center, a service of Riverside Community Care that provides mental healthcare, early childhood programs and family support services throughout Cambridge, Somerville and nearby communities.

Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage affiliated agents and employees donated hundreds of items, including backpacks, paper, notebooks, glue, scissors, as well as boxes of crayons, color pencils, pencils, pens and markers.

“Preparing for the start of the school year is often an exciting time for families, but obtaining the necessary supplies can be stressful for those who face financial difficulties. We are pleased to once again host this drive to help local children and their families begin a new school year with the items they need,” said Merit McIntyre, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in New England. “It is thanks to the efforts of the affiliated agents, staff, friends and neighbors who made this such a successful event.”

The members of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares, the charitable foundation of Coldwell Banker Residential in New England, host an annual Back-to-School Drive for The Guidance Center before the school year begins.

“The Guidance Center families are extremely appreciative of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s continued support through the school supply drive. This year, approximately 100 children who live in families that are struggling to meet basic needs benefitted from the fun backpacks, pencils, notebooks and other necessary items,” said Shannon Sorensen, vice president of child and family services, Riverside Community Care.

Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares is a chapter of Realogy Charitable Foundation, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization. Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares’ primary purpose is to raise funds to provide financial assistance to housing-related causes in the communities where the brokerage has a presence.
