The Weichert Family of Companies recently announced the start of the 37th Annual Weichert Toy Drive. Members of the community are invited to drop off new, unwrapped toys at Weichert sales offices through December 11. The toys will be delivered throughout the holidays to local charities that assist financially and physically disadvantaged children.
Additionally, employees working at both the Weichert corporate headquarters in Morris Plains, N.J., and the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center in Florham Park, N.J., will participate. The toys collected by employees of both organizations will be donated to the United Way of Northern New Jersey and distributed through their Gifts of the Season program.
"As we get into the holiday spirit, it's important to remember those children who are less fortunate, and to do our part to help brighten their holiday season," said Jim Weichert, president and founder of Weichert, Realtors.* *"We are delighted to have the opportunity to work hand in hand with the New York Jets for this year's toy drive, as together we give back to our local communities."
To date, the annual toy drive has yielded hundreds of thousands of items for underprivileged children in the communities Weichert serves. Last year, more than 13,000 toys were distributed to charitable and service organizations.
To make a donation, visit any Weichert, Realtors sales office. To find your local office, please go to www.weichert.com/offices/.
