The Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Westfield West office hosted a Family Appreciation Day as a thank you for the caregivers and siblings who bring patients in for treatment each week at Children’s Specialized Hospital in Mountainside as part of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares Days in April. During Cares Days, sales associates affiliated with all of the real estate company’s 55 offices gave back through projects such as food drives, park clean-ups, and fundraisers to assist with the medical bills of community members in need.
During Family Appreciation Day, children were entertained by a magician and enjoyed story time and a sing-a-along. Activities included face painting, temporary tattoos, bowling, a bean bag toss, coloring, puzzles, and a ring toss. Balloons, cookies and other refreshments were also available. A Disney princess (portrayed by Maddie Hudelson) greeted children as they entered the event.
“Thanks to Cares Ambassadors Lee Corcoran, Janice Good-Piga and Nancy Jean Walker, along with everyone from our office and Children’s Specialized Hospital for making this a special day to remember,” said George Kraus, branch vice president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Westfield West.
During the second annual Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares Days event, 846 sales associates volunteered a combined total of 3,341 hours to support 64 different organizations and causes. Through their efforts, the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares Foundation raised $22,775 for charitable causes. Sales associates also collected $9,000 worth of food, $1,500 in pet supplies and $8,400 in other goods for various organizations.
“Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage sales associates are not only outstanding professionals; they’re caring people who enjoy giving back to their communities.
