The money was collected through the agent-directed CB Cares Foundation. Throughout the Mid-Atlantic area, independent sales associates and employees of Coldwell Banker raise funds through donations from sales commissions, employee payroll deductions and numerous events. These include art auctions, yard sales, a golf tournament, casino night and other fundraisers supported by the local offices.

Founded in 1988, Food & Friends provides home-delivered meals, groceries-to-go and nutritional counseling to people living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other serious illness that limit their ability to provide nourishment for themselves.

The money provided by Coldwell Banker will help the organization continue its work in the Washington area.

“We’re thrilled to support the work of Food & Friends,” said Duff Rubin, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Mid-Atlantic. “The work they do is crucial for our community and we’re proud to support them in their mission.”
