Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the Bay Area’s leading provider of real estate services, announced today that it collected more than 3,000 toys and 1,200 coats over the recent holiday season to benefit families in need throughout the region.

The annual Toys for Tots and One Warm Coat holiday collection campaigns marked the 29th consecutive year that Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has supported the efforts in partnership with the United States Marine Corps Reserve and several non-profit organizations throughout Northern California.

“We’re thankful for the tremendous amount of community support we received for our Toys for Tots and One Warm Coat campaigns this past holiday season,” said Mike James, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “The holidays are a time for taking care of one another and giving to those in need. With the outpouring of generosity from our affiliated agents, clients and neighbors, we were able to help those who needed it most. We hope the toys and warm winter clothing we collected made their season a little brighter.”

Nearly all of the 57 Northern California Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices participated in the Toys for Tots campaign and most offices also took part in the One Warm Coat drive.

The largest collections came from the Santa Cruz area offices, which collected more than 600 toys, and the Folsom office with 150 toys and 200 coats.
