FirstService Residential Partners with Neighbors 4 Neighbors to Collect Halloween Costumes for Needy Children
The Hollywood, Miami and Boca Raton offices of FirstService Residential, North America’s largest manager of residential communities, once again partnered with Neighbors 4 Neighbors in its “Operation Candy Corn” program to collect Halloween costumes for the children of Women In Distress of Broward County and Family Central.
Associates dug deep into their childrens’ closets to donate gently used costumes, while others elected to buy brand-new ones for disadvantaged children. Neighbors 4 Neighbors commits to matching every donation, which enables as many children as possible to partake in traditional Halloween celebrations. This is FirstService Residential’s second year participating with plans already underway for participation in 2017.
“After last year’s success with Operation Candy Corn, our associates were so excited to take part again this year,” said Lillian Guerrero Feijoo, Vice President of Marketing & Communications at FirstService Residential. “We are proud that our associates rallied together to donate costumes and ultimately brighten the lives of some very deserving children in our community.”
