Hollywood, FL (PRWEB) December 27, 2013
FirstService Residential, formerly known in Florida as The Continental Group, joined forces with local charity Spirit of Giving Network to put a smile on children’s faces for the holidays.
Boca Raton office associates collected toys, electronics, gift cards, art supplies and 17 bicycles during their annual holiday office party for the Spirit of Giving Network’s Holiday Gift Drive for Christmas. The organization serves to provide gifts to some 4,000 local children from low-income households.
Each holiday charitable effort is part of FirstService Residential Cares, the company’s year-round corporate philanthropic initiative dedicated to enhancing the lives of the neighbors, residents, and communities it serves across Florida. The primary focus of FirstService Residential Cares is to reach out to nonprofit organizations and entities that meet the FirstService Residential Cares mission.
“It is a pleasure for FirstService Residential to participate in this year’s holiday collection efforts. As a long-time supporter of the Spirit of Giving Network, donating toys for its Holiday Gift Drive is a wonderful way for our staff to make the holidays brighter for local children,” said Gary Pyott, President of HOA/Garden Style for FirstService Residential.
