Weidel Real Estate Helps Struggling Families Prepare for the School Year

 

Pennington, NJ – August 16, 2016 – Last week the Weidel Real Estate Hopewell Valley office worked together with their local community to collect and fill backpacks with essential school supplies for the HomeFront organization, whose mission is to end homelessness in Central New Jersey. As a result of these efforts, a collection of backpacks stuffed with pens, pencils, folders, rulers and more were delivered to struggling families hoping to let their children start the school year off right – with excitement.

“We strongly believe in giving back to the community in which we serve and are very appreciative of all those who donated to ensure that our local families have the resources for a great school year,” says Michael Richman, Branch Manager of the Weidel Hopewell Valley Office. 

To participate in the drive, community members would simply leave school supplies at the Weidel Hopewell Valley office where volunteer Sales Associates would collect and deliver the bags to the charity. Supplies collected helped families throughout the Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex and Monmouth counties prepare for the upcoming school year. 

“We are very proud of our Hopewell Valley team of agents for supporting the community in such a strong way,” says Richard Weidel III, Executive Vice President at Weidel Real Estate. “Their efforts made a difference for several local families, and we look forward to continuing these efforts in the years to come.”

HomeFront works to break the cycle of poverty and end homelessness for local families in need, which is unfortunately still on the rise throughout the state and country. HomeFront utilizes all segments of the community to help those struggling become independent, contributing members of society. For information on how you can help local families through HomeFront, please visit www.homefrontnj.org.
