Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Ballantyne Office Pays It Forward At The Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina

 

Coldwell Banker's Ballantyne Office agents (including me) spent a morning this week paying it forward and giving back to the Charlotte community by volunteering at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. It was three hours of hard work... our team of 10 sorted 6 large pallets (9 big boxes to a pallet) of food that will be distributed throughout the Charlotte region. Hard work notwithstanding, we all felt great after we finished.  There's nothing quite like the feeling of knowing you did something to benefit your community. And at the end of the morning, we were all grateful to have had the opportunity to pay it forward in this season of thanksgiving.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... that is so true. At the end of the day, the Second Harvest Food Bank gets a ton of support from local companies, especially the grocery chains... but it's never enough, it seems. Our office sponsors a charity each quarter... last quarter was Classroom Central which kind of does what the food bank does but with school supplies. We donate time and money. But I've realized over time that money is easy to donate... time not so much... and that's why it's such a valuable contribution.

That's fabulous. Love to see company's giving back to the community. And agree, it seems much more difficult to give time - but, the rewards are HUGE.  Good for you.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD hi Debb... I've often promoted the work of the Second Harvest Food Bank and I've contributed to it both in terms of food and money for a long time, This was the first time I stepped foot into their facitily... it is mind-blowing. One really can't appreciate what and how much they do with so little paid staff until one actually goes in to help.

James Dray hi James... that was really an eye-opener! Our "supervisor" was a veteran who worked as a registered nurse full-time after leaving the military and part-time at the food bank. He recently retired from nursing and works full-time at the food bank supervising the food sorting and distribution process... and you can bet he doesn't make a ton of money. But he is so dedicated to stamping out hunger it makes you want to cry when you speak with him. A true hero.

Grant Schneider good morning, Grant. Thanks. In reality, food backs like Second Harvest work hard just about every day of the year. Watching it close up was simply mind-boggling.

For sure Brian England Sometime we do it somewhat unconsciously and sometimes we need to be a bit more deliberate in doing it.

Hello Nina - these types of events definitely underscore the pay-it-forward aspect of everyday life that can be expressed throughout the year.  An excellent example.
