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.

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.
