  • Sarasota-Bradenton, FL (1888PressRelease) November 18, 2014 - The Sarasota Suncoast Team walked through the entire neighborhood and dropped off flyers inviting the neighbors to participate in their first annual food drive. Door knocking the entire neighborhood from Whitaker Bayou to the Ringling Museum took them about 8 days but they accomplished their goal on a sunny Saturday. The following week large post cards were sent out to the neighbors reminding them of the upcoming food drive.

    They hosted this food drive in conjunction with the neighborhood picnic. All Faiths Food Bank had given them 4 large donation boxes which were all filled to the brim by the end of the picnic. The following Monday the Sarasota Suncoast Team had organized 6 teams of fellow neighbors and Realtors to pick up additional food from each mailbox in the neighborhood. The neighbors of Indian Beach Sapphire Shores were very generous: They donated a total of 650 pounds!

    Donations included canned vegetables, peanut butter and jelly, kid friendly snacks and drinks, pasta, cereal and pet food. All of the food was taken after the food drive to All Faiths Food Bank and donated. The donations should provide hundreds of meals to families in need.

    The team chose this time of the year because of the upcoming holidays and because of the upcoming IBSSA annual picnic on November 9th which was the designated drop off location. All Faiths Food Bank bins were provided at the entrance to the picnic so visitors could drop off their donations. Giving back is a big part of the Keller Williams Realty culture and this annual event is just one of many activities the Sarasota Suncoast Team does to help support local groups and projects in the Sarasota area. The food drive was sponsored by the Sarasota Suncoast Team and Michael Burchette of VanDyk Mortgage.
