Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage is once again joining forces with the United States Marine Corps Reserve for its local Toys for Tots campaign. This season marks Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s 23rd consecutive year as an official gift collection center. The annual program is designed to provide holiday joy for needy children through the collection and distribution of new, unwrapped toys. Fifty-seven Northern California Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices will serve as official collection centers through Dec. 11. Founded in 1947, Toys for Tots has evolved from a small Los Angeles-area project to a nationwide campaign. Over the past 60 years, Marines have distributed more than 370 million toys to some 173 million needy children across the nation. “We look forward to our annual Toys for Tots collection each holiday season,” said Bob Bronswick, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “For many children and their families, the holidays would be very different without the generosity of the public. The Toys for Tots programs exemplifies the spirit of the giving season and we invite our neighbors to participate by dropping off a new, unwrapped toy to their local Coldwell Banker office.” Individuals interested in donating a new, unwrapped toy to the Toys for Tots program may do so at one of the following local Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices: Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Rocklin at 1000 Sunset Blvd., Ste. 190 in Rocklin.
