MAPLEWOOD, NJ -  The Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Maplewood office will be helping to plant vegetables in a community garden that benefits local food pantries as part of “Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares Days,” in which each of the real estate company’s 56 offices in New Jersey and Rockland County, N.Y. will be giving back to local communities through charitable efforts April 24-26. The second annual Cares Days event is organized through the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares Foundation, the company’s philanthropic arm.

On Saturday, April 26 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., sales associates affiliated with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Maplewood will be planting vegetables in the raised beds of the community garden located at The Elks Club on 220 Prospect Street in South Orange, across the street from Our Lady of Sorrows. The produce grown at the garden is donated to the food banks run by Our Lady of Sorrows in South Orange and St. Joseph's Church in Maplewood. Between the two sites, approximately 200 bags of groceries are handed out each week.

“We are happy to take part in the fight against hunger that exists in our community,” said Lorraine Labonne-Storch, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares ambassador at the company’s Maplewood office. “The recipients of the food donated by the food banks will be getting fresh vegetables to supplement their diet, which typically consists of canned and processed foods.”

Since its inception in 2005, the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares Foundation in New Jersey and Rockland County, N.Y. has given more than $626,000 to charities supporting local communities, along with countless volunteer hours donated by the company’s sales associates.
