Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has begun its annual Toys for Tots program in partnership with the United States Marine Corps Reserve and its annual Operation: One Warm Coat clothing drive. Both holiday campaigns run until Dec. 14.

A total of 42 Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices in Northern California will serve as official collection centers for new, unwrapped toys for needy children in our communities. The public is asked to bring new, unwrapped toys to their local Coldwell Banker office.

Additionally, the public is encouraged to donate new and gently used winter items for the homeless and needy in their local communities as part of the annual Operation: One Warm Coat drive.

A total of 36 Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices will act as donation collection centers. They will accept coats, sweaters, jackets, sweatshirts, hats, mittens, towels and blankets. Donations will be sent to local organizations benefiting those in need.

“Our annual Toys for Tots and Operation: One Warm Coat campaigns, along with our food bank drives, give our agents and staff three ways to give back to the communities that have been so supportive of our company all year long,” said Kris Vogt, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

“We've all been so blessed, and I know our agents and staff agree that it’s truly a gift for us to help make the holidays a little brighter for thousands of children and adults in need," he added. "We invite local residents to join us by donating toys and warm clothing that will undoubtedly bring smiles to faces of children and adults alike.”

Founded in 1947, Toys for Tots has evolved from a small Los Angeles-area project to a nationwide campaign. Over the past 64 years, Marines have distributed more than 400 million toys to some 188 million needy children across the nation.
