It’s time to shake things up for a good cause! This year, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in the Sacramento/Tahoe region is re-energizing its philanthropic efforts with the formation of a new local board of directors for its community foundation that will help direct contributions in the local communities and bring a whole new meaning to the brand’s slogan, “Give Where You Live.”

According to Coldwell Banker President Kris Vogt, the latest move will help target the foundation’s resources and ensure that its efforts have the biggest impact locally. Vogt adds, “It is an exciting time in Sacramento/Tahoe as we explore new ways to impact our communities with our philanthropic work.”

Most recently, the community foundation partnered with United Way’s Day of Caring event to work on much needed service projects throughout their local communities with a fantastic show of support. Coldwell Banker Independent Sales Associates and staff from around the Sacramento/Tahoe area braved the heat on September 11 all in the name of charity, and volunteered at various projects throughout Northern California, including local park clean ups, building homes, planting new gardens and much more.

Coldwell Banker Independent Sales Associates and staff are pictured kicking off their morning with a breakfast rally and group stretch led by the Sacramento Kings Dance Team at Cal Expo to prep for their service projects throughout the Sacramento area.

While Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and its affiliated sales associates have always been active in supporting local charitable organizations, the board, led by sales associate Marianela Giem of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Sierra Oaks office, is excited to expand its charitable efforts and help determine what is most important in the communities the brand serves and what other charities can be touched.

A special thanks to all who participated and made this amazing day possible. For additional photos, please check out our Day of Caring album on Facebook.

Volunteers for the Mark White Park beautification project in Roseville, CA got down and dirty by freshening up paint, cleaning the play area and sprucing up the surrounding park, all benefitting the Health Education Council in Roseville.

The heat didn’t slow down Coldwell Banker volunteers on September 11 as they set out to build homes and hope with Habitat for Humanity in the greater Sacramento area.

Volunteers for the Mark White Park beautification project were greeted and thanked by Roseville’s very own mayor, Carol Garcia, for their community service.
