Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the leading provider of real estate services in the Bay Area, announced today that its Elk Grove office is holding a two-week long fundraiser to benefit the Elk Grove Food Bank. The real estate company has also announced that it will match up to $2,500 in donations collected from now until January 15.
Over the next 10 days, sales associates, staff and clients in the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Elk Grove office are encouraged to donate at least five dollars to help the hungry in their community. The public is encouraged to donate by contacting their Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage sales associate or the Elk Grove office directly at 916.684.8180.
“This has been a difficult year for so many in the Elk Grove area and we’re asking for help to feed those who have been going hungry,” said Kris Vogt, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “The fact is that every little bit counts. The holidays are about giving and I am very excited about this opportunity to give back and help hundreds, potentially thousands, of families who may have otherwise gone without this holiday season.”
“We have nearly 90 agents in our office and if we all do our part—no matter what denomination we choose—we can make a difference,” said Jeff Talani, manager of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Elk Grove.
This Elk Grove Food Bank fundraiser is just one of the ways Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage helps local communities each year. For the past 12 years, the company has supported Northern California chapters of Habitat for Humanity, raising more than $2 million, donating more than 43,000 in volunteer hours and participating in the building of 127 homes. It is currently holding its annual Toys for Tots and Operation: One Warm Coat collection drives, where offices have collected thousands of toys and coats, blankets and towels for those Sacramento residents in need.
