Glora Nilson & Co. offices give back to local communities during the holiday season


Embracing the spirit of the holiday season, Gloria Nilson & Co. Real Estate’s 24 offices throughout New Jersey and Bucks County, Pennsylvania have committed to giving back to the communities they serve, thanks to the efforts of the brokerage’s more than 700 real estate professionals.

During the 2016 holiday season, each office adopted a charitable cause in their region or a hyper-local charity effort to benefit specific families or organizations within the community. In many cases, offices partnered with one another to drive greater charitable participation within their individual offices and neighborhoods. These efforts ranged from operating as “drop off centers” for donations to area charities to sales associates organizing and donating volunteer hours to support local food pantries and pet adoption events.

Gloria Nilson & Co. is much more than a real estate brokerage,” noted Pat Bell, president of Gloria Nilson & Co. “Each office and agent is part of the local community. They’re friends and neighbors, and they care about the towns and villages where they do business. There is never a shortage of agents volunteering throughout the year to give to a worthy cause.”

This year’s holiday charity efforts of the various Gloria Nilson & Co. offices included:


Food donations for The People’s Pantry of Toms River

Donations for the RAINE Foundation in Hazlet


Donations for the Castle of Dreams Animal Rescue of Keyport


Donations and Packing Event volunteers for Operation Shoebox New Jersey


Clothing donations for Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Ocean County

Many of the efforts to collect donations noted here will continue through the holiday season, and those interested in making a contribution are encouraged to contact their local Gloria Nilson & Co. offices to learn more or the local charities directly.
