Coldwell Banker agents donate backpacks to kids

A group of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Realtors specializing in University City were the recent sponsors of their 5th annual Backpack Drive, donating and collecting backpacks along with assorted school supplies for homeless and foster children covered under The Office for Children and Youth in Transition, part of the San Diego Unified School District.

The agents involved in this community fundraiser include: Katie Dunahoo, June Kubli, Lydia Hwang Vosovic, Kathleen Williams, John Schindel, Venzel Hammershaimb, Alicia Malo, Carol Uribe, John and Sandy Bassler and Sue Silva. Collectively, they worked to organize the musical event at Standley Park in August. The agents were thrilled with the amount of community support from people of all ages: families even took their children shopping so their children could select the items to donate. In the end, agents delivered a truckload of wonderful items to the school district drop-off location for students coming back to school.

“I am very proud of our agents’ efforts and success with the backpack collection,” said Jeff Nunn, office manager of Coldwell Banker La Jolla. “I love that they are helping children get a good start with the school year during a time when education funding and budgets have been minimized.”
