Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices in Rhode Island recently donated school supplies to The Guidance Center, a nonprofit offering support to families and children suffering from mental and physical disabilities in Massachusetts as part of an annual back-to-school drive to help area children.
Members of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares, the charitable arm of Coldwell Banker Residential New England, donated a van full of crayons, color pencils, paper, notebooks, glue, scissors, backpacks and other school essentials to the center’s main office at 5 Sacramento St. in Cambridge.
“Every year, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage enjoys collecting school supplies for the benefit of children served by The Guidance Center. We realize that some families are struggling financially and can’t afford to purchase supplies that their children will need to have a successful academic experience,” said Pat Villani, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in New England. “I am very proud of our employees and sales associates for generously donating so many school supplies.”
More than 100 children benefited from the donations. •
