Press release submitted by the Bolton office of Coldwell Residential Brokerage
The Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office in Bolton will help sell Thanksgiving pies to benefit Community Servings. Apple, pecan, pumpkin and sweet potato pies will be sold for $30 each as part of Community Servings’ 26th annual Pie in the Sky fundraiser.
Community Servings is a nonprofit food and nutrition program that provides made-from-scratch, medically-tailored meals to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses in cities and towns throughout Massachusetts. In addition to providing home-delivered meals, Community Servings offers nutrition education classes for the nutritionally vulnerable and food service job training for individuals who face barriers to employment.
Each fall, Community Servings enlists volunteers to sell Thanksgiving pies to raise money for its programs as part of its Pie in the Sky fundraiser. Last year, Community Servings exceeded its initial goal to raise $800,000 and raised $822,000 for its 25th anniversary of Pie in the Sky.
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has been a consistent supporter of this annual fundraising effort, and last year the company’s employees and affiliated sales associates raised $161,157. The company has also served as a lead title sponsor of Pie in the Sky, and Coldwell Banker offices throughout the region have hosted pie pick-up locations.
In 2016, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage New England and Community Servings were selected as Boston Business Journal’s “Partners of the Year” in recognition of the company’s commitment to Community Servings’ mission to provide nutritious meals to our most vulnerable neighbors.
“Our affiliated sales associates and employees are excited to once again support this important fundraiser, now in its 26th year,” said Merit McIntyre, president, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in New England. “We know that by selling thousands of pies each year, we are helping Community Servings in its mission to provide critical services and programs to our community members who are struggling with life-threatening illnesses. Through the generosity of our neighbors, employees and affiliated sales associates, we have been able to make a significant difference in the lives of Community Servings’ clients.”
Over 100 of Greater Boston’s most generous bakers, restaurants, and caterers, including Flour, Mistral, Russell Orchards, In a Pickle Restaurant, Harvest and Vicki Lee’s, are preparing and donating pies.
“We’re proud of our 18 year partnership with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage during our Pie in the Sky fundraiser,” said David B. Waters, CEO of Community Servings. “Their involvement has helped us grow what was once a grassroots bake sale into our most successful fundraiser, raising millions of dollars, and we’re grateful to Coldwell Banker employees and affiliated agents who enthusiastically act as Community Servings ambassadors during Pie in the Sky and year-round.”
