Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage is proudly joining forces with NorthStar Moving to help tackle the serious problem of hunger in Southern California. The Let’s Send Hunger Packing competition will start July 19 and run until August 19 with nearly 40 Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices competing to raise both food and monetary donations for their local food banks. In addition, Coldwell Banker is also encouraging donations to the Coldwell Banker Community Foundation to raise even more money for local food banks.
“It’s such a tragedy to know that—in a beautiful state like California—we have so many people going hungry,” said Jeff Culbertson, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Southern California Companies and executive vice president of NRT’s Southwest Region. “We’re talking about the elderly. We’re talking about children—people who really need the community behind them. That’s why it’s so important that Coldwell Banker is involved with this mission. Through Let’s Send Hunger Packing, I believe we can really make a difference.”
According to the Map the Meal Gap study, there are 1,749,600 “food insecure people” in Los Angeles alone and many hundreds of thousands more across Orange County—many of them children. “One out of four children in Los Angeles County and one out of five children in Orange County are at risk of going to bed hungry tonight,” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm. “By donating even one food item to your local Coldwell Banker office, you will be helping feed a hungry child.”
No one—especially a child—should go hungry in California. Let’s Send Hunger Packing is one way to fight this community tragedy. If you’d like to support this cause, please stop by your local Coldwell Banker office with your donations.
