Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has donated $12,770 to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.

Coldwell’s sales associates and staff in the Santa Clara and San Mateo County offices raised half of the amount during a fundraiser to benefit Bay Area food banks. The Coldwell Banker Community Fund matched the raised funds to further help the cause.

“We are very grateful for the support from Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage,” said Paul Ash, executive director of the San Francisco Food Bank. “The contributions will help the Food Bank to feed the growing number of hungry people in our community.”
