Santa Monica Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices are competing against other cities and towns to collect the most food and monetary donations for their local food bank.
NorthStar Moving Company has teamed up with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage to launch their first annual summer food drive competition to feed hungry children in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.
The donations will help feed the one in four children in Los Angeles County and one in five children in Orange County that are at risk of going to bed hungry tonight.
The month long food drive kicked off July 19 and will run through Aug. 19.
Donations are now being accepted at Santa Monica Coldwell Banker offices.
The donations will benefit the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
NorthStar Moving will pick-up and transport all of the donated items to the food bank.
In addition to food collection, Santa Monica Coldwell Bankers will be donating to the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Community Foundation to raise money for the food bank.
When the total donations are in, NorthStar Moving will award four of the offices. They will buy lunch for the offices in each county who donate the most food and donate the most money.
“Many people don’t realize that hungry children are dependent on their school lunches which could be their only meal of the day, so the need for food donations is even more urgent in the summer,” NorthStar Moving co-founder and Santa Monica resident Laura McHolm. “We are so pleased to partner with Coldwell Banker to bring awareness to this critical need taking place right in our back yard and raise as much food and money as we can through our friendly competition. But its not just up to Coldwell Banker, we are asking everyone to please join us in sending hunger packing. By donating even one food item to your local Coldwell Banker office you will be helping feed a hungry child.”
Santa Monica Montana Coldwell Banker is located at 1608 Montana Avenue, Santa Monica while the Santa Monica/Westwood Coldwell Banker is located at 2444 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 102, Santa Monica.
