DENVER, Colo. – August 13, 2012 –
More than 100 real estate professionals and support personnel with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage recently gathered at locations in metro Denver, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins to help victims of wildfires and recent tragedies. The inaugural Day of Service on August 1 was an overwhelming success as volunteers unloaded trucks, stocked shelves, distributed food and household goods, and performed a variety of other tasks to help those in need.
“The Day of Service was a true testament to our community spirit and the generosity of our agents, staff and others who worked tirelessly to help those victimized by recent fires and tragedies,” said Chris Mygatt, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Colorado. “I couldn’t be more proud of our caring professionals who understand how vital it is to give back to the communities in which we live, work and play. It was an amazing day, and we encourage everyone throughout our great state to do what they can to help those whose lives have changed dramatically due to recent events.”
Day of Service volunteers gathered at the Habitat for Humanity Restores in Denver, Wheat Ridge and Littleton to assist customers, and the Colorado Aids Project Food Bank to unload and hand out food, and to organize shelves. In Colorado Springs, volunteers performed a variety of services at the Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity Restore and the Colorado Springs Salvation Army.
