)-- The Continental Group (TCG), a FirstService Residential Management company, is partnering with the United Way in support of its annual coat drive, “Coats for Kids at Christmas.” Employees will collect gently used coats for children who need them throughout the panhandle. Additionally, the Destin office plans to once more partner with Habitat for Humanity to build a new home for a local family in need during the coming months.
Each charitable holiday effort is part of Continental Cares, TCG’s year-round corporate philanthropic outreach program dedicated to enhancing the lives of the neighbors and residents of the communities it serves. The primary focus of Continental Cares is to reach out to nonprofit organizations and entities that meet the Continental Cares mission.
“TCG’s employees are extremely enthusiastic and generous when it comes to donating to charity,” said Dan Buckner TCG Senior Vice President of Gulf Coast Region. “It is a pleasure for us to participate in the United Way’s Coats for Kids at Christmas. We ask that the Destin community supports this great initiative.”
