On November 6th we held our annual Arrive Gives Back Warm Coat Drive in Oakland and Pleasanton. The results are in… Thanks to our community, we were able to collect more than 600 coats! This is what community looks like!!! We received fleeces, vests, leather jackets, sports team jackets, blazers, rain jackets, kids jackets and everything in between. The gently used and new coats have been sorted and donated to local charities, Hively and East Bay Agency for Children. They were blown away by the donations received and the outpouring of support from the community. Thank you to everyone who donated and a special thank you to our partners at Porky’s Pizza in Pleasanton, Red Boy Pizza of Oakland and Mat Dahms from State Farm Insurance.
At Arrive Real Estate Group we understand that it is a privilege and an honor to live in the communities that we serve. It is a core value and part of our mission as local business owners to create strategic partnerships within our community and seek out opportunities to give back and allow others to do the same. These partnerships allow us to serve our community in a different way. One that creates a positive effect on the place that we and so many of our clients call home. With expanded reach, community partnerships and email marketing our Annual Warm Coat drive continues to thrive. See you next year!
