Gathering Goods for the Thanksgiving Holiday Season

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Clemens & Sons Realty

At our meeting on November 20th, the Valley Chapter of Business Network International (BNI) contributed over 50 pounds of non-perishable foods in a collection for Foodshare. My fellow members and I have pledged to continue bringing food items until December 15th when I will bring them to Foodshare in Bloomfield, Connecticut for donation.


Other food donations have already been made at the Century 21 Clemens & Sons office located at 1001 Farmington Avenue in West Hartford Center, Connecticut.  I announced the food drive on my website,, on November 1st, and donations have been plentiful.  I expect to deliver many baskets of items to Foodshare on behalf of the Valley Chapter, my clients, friends, and colleagues.  Other donations are welcome between 9 AM and 5:30 PM at the Century 21 Clemens & Sons office.  Thank you for your contribution!


The Valley Chapter meets every Thursday morning at Fresko's Grill and Wine Bar, 5 East Main Street, Avon.  Business professionals network weekly to build teams of qualified, pre-screened partners. It is actively recruiting business partners from many professions throughout the Farmington Valley area.  Everyone is welcome to visit. 


More information about BNI can be found on the Connecticut website, or on the international website,  For additional information about the Valley chapter, or for membership details, contact the president of the chapter, Joe O'Donnell, at 860-651-7283.
