Gift Card Program Benefits Home for Little Wanderers
For Each Boston College Eagles Touchdown, Coldwell Banker Will Donate Gift Card!
Jamaica Plain, MA. The Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office in Jamaica Plain is pleased to announce the kick-off of 6 for 60, a new program and partnership with Boston College that will benefit The Home for Little Wanderers’ (The Home) annual holiday gift drive.
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage will donate a $60 gift card for every touchdown that the Boston College Eagles score during the 2012 football season to The Home in support of its Big Wishes for Little Wanderers Gift Drive. Partnering with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in this effort is Walsh Brothers Construction, which will
match each $60 gift card donated by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
“Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage treasures the partnerships we have built with The Home and other charitable organizations throughout New England. Each holiday season, the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices collect and donate thousands of toys in support of
The Home’s holiday gift drive,” said Pat Villani, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in New England. “This year, we wanted to provide even greater assistance so we developed the 6 for 60 program to purchase gift cards. The gift cards will enable the teenagers served by The Home to shop for clothing, music and other items that are on their holiday wish lists.”
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage will be publicizing “6 for 60” as part of a multi-pronged advertising campaign with Boston College that includes full-page color ads in game day programs and radio broadcast mentions when the Eagles score a touchdown.
“Every holiday season, The Home receives many wonderful donations from throughout the community, yet our
greatest challenge is to provide suitable gifts for the teenagers and families in need,” said Joan Wallace-Benjamin, president & CEO of The Home for Little Wanderers. “We greatly appreciate Coldwell Banker’s support and that they recognize how gift cards allow the older youth and families in our programs the flexibility to buy essentials.”
“Every year, we ask our neighbors in Jamaica Plain to
join us in providing a happier holiday for the children and families supported by The Home. This year we are pleased to lend our support for this new initiative which we hope will bring even more joy to the children,” said Paul Melanson, sales manager of the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office in Jamaica Plain.
