Coldwell Banker CARES Foundation, the charitable arm of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate, has given two donations totaling $4,800 to The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries (SSKP) to support their work feeding the hungry of the shoreline.

The donations, presented at SSKP’s Old Saybrook Pantry and at the Essex office of Coldwell Banker Real Estate, represent many gifts made by individual local realtors who are focused on charitable giving in the local communities where they work.  Participating Coldwell Banker associates make a donation to the Coldwell Banker CARES foundation from every closing real estate transaction, as well as through fundraising events.

“The support SSKP receives from Coldwell CARES is especially thoughtful, as it represents many individual donations and fundraising events held throughout the year. Their generosity assures that those in our community who are in need will have a place to turn for food and fellowship in these difficult economic times.  These funds will provide enough food for 11,430 meals for those who attend one of our pantries.  On behalf of those we serve, who experience a community that cares deeply each time they attend a pantry, I thank Coldwell CARES for answering the call of those in need on the shoreline,” said Patty Dowling, executive director of SSKP.
