Coldwell Banker Takes Part in Sandy Relief Efforts

The Oradell office has been collecting food and coats for displaced residents following Hurricane Sandy

For the past few weeks, Coldwell Banker in Oradell has been busy collecting food and coats for area residents that have been displaced by Hurricane Sandy.

Grace Giacomello, office administrator of Coldwell Banker in Oradell, coordinated a food drive through St. Margaret’s of Cortona Parish in Little Ferry. At the sametime, the office also created a partnership with the Lodi Police Department to collect coats to distribute to Little Ferry and Lodi-area families that were displaced during the storm.

The community both near and far has been generous with donations, said Donna Conte, branch vice president of Coldwell Banker in Oradell.  

"What a great sense of community we have both in our company and our neighbors here in Bergen County," said Conte. "The outpouring of help to support our residents in distress has been phenomenal."

Donations even came from as far as Maryland as Karin Batteron, an agent with the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Roland Park office in Baltimore, offered to send up coats to help.
