Firm Ranks as the #1 Real Estate Corporate Donor in NYC for Second Consecutive Year
Press Release – NEW YORK, NY – As part of their ongoing philanthropic efforts, Halstead Property’s Helping Hands collected nearly 3,500 coats throughout their Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens offices in collaboration with the New York Cares 2016 Coat Drive. Halstead ranked as the #2 corporate donor overall and has been the #1 real estate corporate donor in NYC for the past two years.
“With so many in need of a warm coat this winter, it is amazing that we can unite in this effort to make such a real and tangibly positive impact. I’m incredibly proud of our agents for all their hard work and dedication in consistently devoting their time to helping make our community a better place,” said Sara Rotter, Executive Director of Sales for Halstead’s Village and SoHo offices. Rotter co-leads Halstead Helping Hands with John Wollberg, Executive Vice President, Managing Director of Halstead and Trish Martin, Managing Director of Sales for Halstead’s Brooklyn offices.
The firm gathered coats by using a multi-tiered strategy, which included placing donation boxes in the majority of Halstead’s storefront offices, managed buildings, and residential buildings that they serve throughout the city, as well as creating a targeted email campaign to Halstead’s agents and their customers, and distributing building postcards to encourage residents to donate. Halstead partnered with Scanio Movers to coordinate pickups of the coats to ensure a timely delivery to New York Cares and their recipients.
“As family owned, New York City-based businesses, Scanio Movers and Sea & Air International recognize the importance of supporting our community,” said Nir Shuminer, President, Scanio Moving and Storage. “Our companies help families relocate within the US and internationally. Our customers and staff are proud to support Halstead and the New York Cares Coat Drive for the third year running to help those in need in our city.”
To have a strong focus on community initiatives and nonprofit causes for its 1,300 agents throughout New York, Connecticut and New Jersey, Halstead Helping Hands identifies local initiatives or charities that are in need of help and opens the opportunity up throughout the firm.
Through the Halstead Helping Hands initiative this year, agents in New York City and New Jersey worked with New York Cares, one of the city’s largest volunteer management organizations, on its 28th Annual Coat Drive; agents in Halstead’s Hamptons offices collected for Toys for Tots; and those in Connecticut collected gifts on behalf of Inspirica, one of the state’s largest providers of services to the homeless, and Toys for Tots in order to help struggling families enjoy the holiday season.
