Prudential helps build the Family Promise playground!

Prudential Fox & Roach’s Hockessin/Pike Creek Office volunteers have done a tremendous service for Family Promise, coming out in force to help us build a new playground for our families.  

Eyewitness account from Board member Pastor Paul Lundmark who organized the operation:  "At one point on Thursday, I counted twenty volunteers from Prudential Fox Roach Realtors helping to put together the new playset at the Family Promise Center. They were awesome -with an A+titude - clearing the playground, hauling away two pickup loads of brush and clutter and assembling the lion's share of the playset which we'll finish up hopefully this coming Saturday. Thanks guys!"

Prudential Fox & Roach and its affiliate, The Trident Group, has over 64 offices in the region with an established charity to focus its energy on supporting the communities they serve.  Annually, Prudential Fox & Roach Charities participate in Community Service Day which is its day of giving back to the community. On this day all offices are closed to business and employees work with a non-profit on a service project. This is a formidable amount of manpower!  Since Prudential Fox & Roach’ s Charity mission statement iscommitted to addressing the needs of children and families in stressful life circumstances,” Prudential is especially enthused to participate in a program which directly reverses the movement of families from homelessness into safe housing while keeping the families in tact.  Fox & Roach Charities has given over $3,000,000 in donations to over 350 community organizations since 1995.

Have a look!  Here you will find a complete photo album of events during the day:
