The real estate firm’s Thanksgiving Food Drive ended on Tuesday with more than 150 bags of food and nearly $1,000 of supermarket gift cards going to local families in need.
Just as Wolf Commercial Real Estate has grown its business rapidly, its charitable initiatives are following suit. The firm’s third annual Thanksgiving Food Drive concluded on Nov. 22 with the team bringing more than 150 bags of food and nearly $1,000 in supermarket gift cards to the Jewish Family and Children’s Service Food Pantry in Cherry Hill. That’s more than double the amount the Marlton-based firm donated last year.
During the past several weeks, WCRE collected food and grocery store gift cards from friends, clients and colleagues throughout Southern New Jersey and Southeastern Pennsylvania. More than thirty area businesses contributed to the effort.
“Initiatives like this help in several ways, because WCRE went beyond collecting food and funds, inspiring many other businesses and individuals to help people in need,” said Marla Meyers, executive director of Samost Jewish Family and Children’s Services of Southern New Jersey.
The food drive is part of WCRE’s Community Commitment program, which also includes donating a portion of the proceeds from every transaction to one of several local charities. In September the firm hosted its first charitable community event, a hockey game fundraiser in which local business leaders played alongside several former Philadelphia Flyers. That event raised more than $45,000 for several local charities.
