YPN Needs Locations for Push for Pencils Drive

Posted on: July 6th, 2016 by Andrew Clark No Comments

Dear Greater Cincinnati Area Brokers and Office Managers,

We are writing in hopes of your support for the CABR Young Professional Network annual fundraising event.  The YPN has decided for the second year to support the organization of Crayons to Computers, Push for Pencils.  This event will take place August 1st through August 19th.

We believe that every child deserves the quantity and quality of supplies needed to succeed in our local schools. Therefore, our school supply drive is designed to support Crayons to Computers with providing school supplies for children in our low-income communities around the Greater Cincinnati area.

Last year, we donated school supplies that were worth $6,222 from15 different Real Estate offices contributing. Our goal for 2016 is to raise $10,000 dollars in supplies from 25 offices that will be used at no charge through the Teacher Free Store and Mobile Outreach Program.

We will provide a donation box for your office, a flyer about the school supply drive, as well as a list of the top school supplies needed by Crayons to Computers.  We would love to have your support this year!

Please contact Amanda Wilson (awilson@cabr.org) by July 20, 2016 if you would like to participate in the drive.   Once we have your commitment, a member of the YPN committee will drop off a donation box by August 1st and pick up the box at the end of the drive. 

All we ask from you is:  (1) email Amanda to say “Yes, our office wants to support the YPN’s Push for Pencils Drive” (2) Sharing the information about the school supply drive to all the agents in your office.

If you have any questions or concerns in the meantime, please feel free to contact us.

Thank you in advance,
The Young Professional Network Committee
