FirstService Residential and Neighbors 4 Neighbors Partner to Collect and Distribute Children’s Halloween Costumes
Many associates dug deep into their children’s closets to donate gently used costumes, while others elected to buy brand-new ones for disadvantaged children. The yearly costume drive makes a strong impact in South Florida communities, in part because Neighbors 4 Neighbors commits to match every donation. This enables as many children as possible to partake in traditional Halloween celebrations. The initiative was deemed a success, and plans are already underway for FirstService Residential to participate in 2016.
“We are thrilled to take part in Operation Candy Corn. Our associates were happy to do all they could to make Halloween a fun holiday for children from low-income families in our community,” said Lillian Guerrero Feijoo, Vice President of Marketing & Communications of FirstService Residential. “Our company’s mission is to enhance the lifestyle of every resident in the communities we serve—and we see Operation Candy Corn as an extension of that mission.”
