November 10, 2009 // Franchising.com // MORRIS PLAINS, N.J., – In an effort to brighten the holiday season for children in need, Weichert kicked off its 31st Annual Toy Drive. Toys will be collected at each of the company's sales offices for distribution to financially and/or physically disadvantaged children within the local communities. Weichert employees at the company's corporate headquarters in Morris Plains, along with other company locations throughout the United States will also participate in the yearly community service event.
"Every year we look forward to making the holiday season more enjoyable for the local communities we serve," said James M. Weichert, president and founder of Weichert, Realtors. "I'm proud that for 31 years we have had a part in enriching the lives of the children who are most in need."
Weichert offices will accept donations of new unwrapped toys through December 11. Local charities that assist needy or underprivileged children will deliver the toys during the holidays. Last year nearly 25,000 toys were distributed to charitable and service organizations in the communities Weichert serves.
To make a donation, drop off new, unwrapped toys at any Weichert, Realtors office. For more information, contact a local Weichert office.
