Miami, FL (PRWEB) January 13, 2013
The Continental Group (TCG), a FirstService Residential Management company, joined forces with the “I Have a Dream” Foundation to help underprivileged children from Hibiscus Elementary School, a Title I school in the City of Miami Gardens.
TCG employees donated $1,500 to fund the purchase of 100 backpacks. These were filled with school supplies and a toy, board game or sporting equipment donated by residents of Continental-managed properties throughout Dade and Broward County.
The goal is for each school child to be greeted with a full backpack upon his or her return to Hibiscus Elementary School at the end of the winter break on January 9th, 2013. Donated sporting equipment and board games will be used in afterschool activity programs.
This charitable effort is part of Continental Cares, TCG’s year-round corporate philanthropic outreach program dedicated to enhancing the lives of the neighbors, residents, and communities it serves across Florida. The primary focus of Continental Cares is to reach out to nonprofit organizations and entities that meet the Continental Cares mission.
“We’re happy to partner up with the ‘I Have a Dream Foundation’ for this ‘Holiday after the Holidays’ drive," said Andrea Escue, TCG’s Regional Director of Client Relations. “It’s nice for TCG and its employees to continually give back to the community it represents.”
