Perhaps it’s our kids’ constantly growing wish lists or maybe it’s our overflowing dinner tables filled with turkey, mashed potatoes and pie that leave us thinking about the less fortunate. Whatever the reason may be, as we prepare for the holiday season, we are often left with mixed emotions.

While we are certainly excited to see our children jump for joy as they marvel at their shiny new toys, we can’t help but think about the less fortunate children that have never experienced the same magical morning or woken up to a table full of food and neatly wrapped gifts under the tree.

If you’re wondering how you can reach out in your community and help brighten the spirits of those less fortunate then join forces with Coldwell Banker and help give the gift of joy!

In accordance with the generous spirit of the holidays, Coldwell Banker’s Toys for Tots and One Warm Coat charity efforts are well on their way and are happening now until December 12th at all participating Northern California offices listed below.

So here’s how you can help out:
