Complimentary coffee morning celebrates Moorestown’s ‘resilience’

Local businesses focus on township’s strength during COVID

 

Christine Harkinson/Special to The Sun: Coldwell Banker Realty, located on Main Street in Moorestown, serves community members free coffee on Sept. 8.

With school now in session, some Moorestown residents are ready to get back to normal.

Coldwell Banker Realty, in partnership with Guaranteed Rate Affinity, Real Safe Title and The Cubby Hole, hosted a complimentary coffee morning on Sept. 8 to celebrate the township, its community, and local businesses.

“This is a way to give back to the community,” said Moorestown’s Nicole Ventrella, a realtor and sales associate for Coldwell. “It’s to say thank you to a year of endurance, and for the resilience, to celebrate the return to in person school for many, and to show our support for the community.”

Coldwell was previously known as Coldwell Banker Preferred and has been a staple in Moorestown for years. Complimentary coffee morning was a way for the company to show its appreciation to the community and to celebrate the strength Moorestown has shown during COVID.

Christine Harkinson/Special to The Sun: The Cubby Hole on Main Street in Moorestown helped host complimentary coffee morning for residents earlier this month.

“Moorestown has shown community spirit through resilience and endurance of seeing through difficult times and coming out of the other end stronger,” Ventrella said.

Coldwell Banker Realty, Real Safe Title and Guaranteed Rate Affinity have partnered to host previous events in Moorestown and surrounding communities in support of local charities and organizations, including Adoptive Pet Day; Moorestown Day; and a Ronald McDonald breakfast, all virtual this year due to the pandemic.

“We partnered with a local adoption center; they came and brought all of their pets, and people could walk right up, and they adopted a lot of pets,” said Kelly Nyikita, vice president of Mortgage Lending at Guaranteed Rate Affinity.

Coldwell Banker is dedicated not only to giving back to Moorestown, but other local communities. Patricia Blosfelds, a Realtor for Coldwell Banker and a township resident, recalled a special event the company put together.

“There was a contest that was for donating shoes, and then they were given to Third- World countries. We had a big contest and people were dropping off shoes, and we got so many shoes with that,” she said.

Complimentary coffee morning also enabled residents to get advice on any subject for which they had questions.

“We just want to be here to celebrate the resilience of the community and we’re here to offer any advice they may need for real estate, mortgages and titles,” Nyikita said.
