Coldwell Banker is getting a head start on the season of giving this year – and we’re kicking things off in a big way.

Coldwell Banker’s “Give Where You Live” charity campaign, running now through October 31, is a fundraising opportunity in which participating offices raise money for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford and local charities of their choice through fun and engaging events.

Coldwell Banker Independent Sales Associates, staff, clients and family and friends are showing us that giving where you live can be as rewarding as it is a grand time.

Check out how Coldwell Banker offices are lending a hand in making this campaign the best it can be!
