North Penn Life - - Real Estate -

The Weichert Fam­ily of Com­pa­nies suc­cess­fully com­pleted its 34th An­nual Toy Drive, col­lect­ing more than 16,000 new toys for dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren in time for the hol­i­day sea­son, and more than $4,000 in mon­e­tary do­na­tions.

“With the pass­ing of Hur­ri­cane Sandy in late Oc­to­ber, the dev­as­ta­tion that was left in its wake made the need in the com­mu­ni­ties we serve that much greater this hol­i­day sea­son,” said Jim Weichert, pres­i­dent and founder of Weichert, Real­tors.

“I am proud to say that not only did our sales as­so­ci­ates and em­ploy­ees, as well as the res­i­dents of the com­mu­ni­ties we serve, show their gen­eros­ity and sup­port for the toy drive, but that to­gether we were able to do­nate more than 500 pounds of food to lo­cal shel­ters and nearly 800 cloth­ing items to area com­mu­nity cen­ters in the days and weeks fol­low­ing the storm.”

The col­lected toys were do­nated to numer­ous char­i­ties through­out the re­gions in which Weichert does busi­ness, in­clud­ing Ron­ald McDon­ald House, Jersey Bat­tered Women’s Ser­vice, In­ter­faith Coun­cil for Home­less Fam­i­lies of Mor­ris County, Ja­son’s Dreams for Kids Foun­da­tion, wa­kee En­rich­ment Foun­da­tion, the Sal­va­tion Army, the Flem­ing­ton Food Pantry, Child­help rSA, the St. Ann’s In­fant and Ma­ter­nity Home, Peace: A Learned So­lu­tion, Shel­ter our Sis­ters, Brian’s House and Peo­ple to Peo­ple, to name just a few.
