Resources Real Estate Celebrates 4th Office with 'Move for Hunger' Benefit
Posted by Deirdre York — October 9, 2013
ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - RESOURCES Real Estate seems to be everywhere these days, most recently in Atlantic Highlands where their new office opening offered more than one reason to celebrate.
As a renewal of their community partnership with Move for Hunger, a nonprofit organization based in Neptune, NJ, Resources Real Estate agents were joined by members of the community, family and friends at the Wine Bar, also in Atlantic Highlands, for an evening of cocktails, refreshments and a food drive.
More than 440 pounds of food were collected, which is enough to provide 360 meals for families in need. Move for Hunger works with relocation companies to help fill the pantries of our nation's food banks.
Resources Real Estate presented the organization with a check for $2,000 as a token of their partnership and support.
“We at Resources appreciate what Move for Hunger stands for and wanted to support their efforts,” said Carolynn Diakon, Broker-Senior Partner. “Rather than have the opening of our new office be all about us, we felt it made sense to join forces with another group of people who are working to make a difference in people’s lives.”
Move for Hunger is an ingenious concept, says Thomas McCormack, Broker-Managing Partner. “When an individual or a family moves and has unwanted non-perishable food that would otherwise be thrown out, Move for Hunger movers pick up the food and deliver it to local food banks -- it’s so simple but very effective.”
