SOUTHFIELD, Mich., February 4, 2014—Southfield, Mich.-based Farbman Group, a leading full-service real estate company, hosted their fifth annual “Christmas in January” food drive to benefit Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan and collected enough food and cash donations to offer 1,952 meals to metro Detroit families in need. The food drive took place Wednesday, Jan. 29, at six Farbman Group office buildings located in Southfield, Bingham Farms, Troy and Detroit.
Farbman Group employees, building tenants and members of the community filled collection boxes and trucks at each drop-off location with a variety of items recommended by Gleaners, including high protein canned items, personal care items, individually packaged healthy snacks for kids and cash donations.
“Once more, this food drive has been very successful, and we are proud to have collected nearly 1,900 pounds of food to benefit Gleaners, which will provide 1,952 meals for our hungry neighbors this winter,” said Andrew V. Farbman, CEO of Farbman Group. “The incredible expression of generosity from our employees and the local community during a time when people are not typically thinking about giving back will make a great difference to those in need. We look forward to hosting another successful drive next January.”
