Another Record Breaking Year!

Thank you BHHS Fox & Roach and The Trident Group sales associates, employees, executives, families, friends, clients and sponsors who came together to set a new record for this year’s backpack drive.

 

Between backpack donations and cash contributions we were able to acquire 5,345 backpacks for children who are homeless or in foster care throughout Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania! That represents over $79,000 in contributions.

Congratulations to the top sales offices within each region, the top Trident offices, and the top corporate departments!


Thank you to the many offices that topped their donations from 2016,
helping many more children in need have a successful start to the school year!
And congratulations to our top ten offices and departments for 2017!
