“Every year I look forward to the Annual Weichert Toy Drive,” said Jim Weichert, president and founder of Weichert, Realtors. “I’m proud to say that for the last 35 years we’ve had the unique privilege of making a special difference, and brightening the spirits of those less fortunate in this country. I invite you to join us in our efforts to give the greatest gift of all this holiday season: joy to the children and families who need it most.”
The Weichert, Realtors Summit office, located at 474 Morris Avenue, will be collecting donations for new, unwrapped toys for the critically ill children now through Wednesday, December 18th.
