Backpacks for all!

Prudential Fox and Roach Realtors and The Trident Group recently held their Sixth Annual Backpack Drive, which surpassed any past collections with the final numbers at 1,108 fully-loaded backpacks collected. The company’s Haddonfield Office representatives gathered with their collected backpacks include Fay Smith, Frank Constantino, Jan Baker, Linda McNally and Chip Longo.

“In today’s tough economy, it’s gratifying to see how our company comes together for such a great cause to help so many children in need in the Tri-State area. Having our largest backpack drive to date, it really speaks volumes for PFR/T and the communities we continue to serve,” said Kassie Aungst, Director of Fox and Roach Charities. Since 2006, the company has collected over 4,500 backpacks and supplies for homeless/foster care children in the Tri-State.

Fox and Roach Charities, a charitable foundation sponsored by Prudential Fox and Roach Realtors, coordinated this project with the company’s sales associates and employees and partnered with Five Below, L&J Moving and Storage, Cradles to Crayons, a non-profit organization that provides, free of charge, the basic necessities to children living in poor and low-income families. Backpacks were collected and distributed by Cradles to Crayons to children in need throughout the Tri-State area. New Jersey offices collected 374 backpacks that will be distributed by Cradles to Crayons to the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services.
