William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty Hosts “Toys for Tots” to Support Local Children in the Community

Essex, Conn. (November 27, 2019) — William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty plans to support the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program by hosting a collection at the firm’s Essex and Old Lyme brokerages starting now through December 15th. Essex agent Don Shannehan has been the lead liaison between the office and the program for years and oversees the collection.

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.

“Taking part in this wonderful local cause that supports the children of our country is heart-warming and humbling,” said Maureen Swarts, manager of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty’s Essex and Old Lyme Brokerages. “We thank Don for his service, both overseas and in our own community. Each year, the community support is overwhelming, and we can’t wait to see the positive impact that comes from this year’s collection.”

This is the brokerage’s fifth year collecting Toys for Tots.  The firm welcomes all new, unwrapped toys from now through December 15th.  For more information, please contact Maureen Swarts by email at mswarts@williampitt.com, or by phone at 860.767.7488.
