Essex, Conn. (November 12, 2014) — William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realtyplans to support the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program by hosting a collection at the firm’s Essex brokerage starting now through December 7th. Old Lyme agent Bob Berry’s son, Private First Class Jeff Berrry, is home from active duty for Thanksgiving, and will be in his dress blues outside of the Essex office on the Saturday after Thanksgiving collecting toys for the cause.
Toys for Tots is a program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, in which new, unwrapped toys are collected and distributed as Christmas gifts to the less fortunate children of that specific campaign’s local community. The collections take place every year from October to December, and maintain the primary goal of delivering the message of hope to the future of our country through a new toy at Christmas.
“We are humbled to be taking part in this wonderful local cause,” said Maureen Swarts, manager of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty’s Essex Brokerage. “Toys for Tots epitomizes what the spirit of the holiday season is all about—giving to others and spreading joy in the community. We thank agent Bob Berry and his son for contributing, and can’t wait to see the outcome and positive impact our efforts have.”
This is the brokerage’s second year collecting Toys for Tots. The firm welcomes all donations from now through December 7th. For more information, please contact Maureen Swarts by email at email@example.com, or by phone at 860.767.7488.
