January 08, 2010 // Franchising.com // MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. The Weichert Family of Companies concluded its 31st annual toy drive by collecting more than 25,000 toys for less fortunate children this past holiday season. The toys were collected by Weichert, Realtors sales offices, corporate employees and franchise affiliates and were provided to various charities throughout the country. In addition to the toys collected, Weichert gathered and donated nearly 1300 articles of clothing, food and other items as well as monetary contributions totaling nearly $5,000.

"It's encouraging to see that even during challenging financial times the desire to help others remains as strong as ever," said James M. Weichert, president and founder of Weichert, Realtors, one of the nation's largest independent real estate companies. "I would like to express my gratitude toward our agents, employees and those within the local communities who joined our cause to provide holiday cheer to children and families in need."

Charities that benefited from this year's efforts include the United Way, Salvation Army, St. Peter's Orphanage, Operation Love, Valerie Fund, United Christian Ministries and Childhelp USA.
