BRENTWOOD, TN.- A group of Crye-Leike, Realtors agents in the Cleveland Tennessee office participated in a food drive to benefit the Salvation Army Food Bank.  In the month of September the Cleveland Crye-Leike Office held a food drive to help fill the shelves of our local Salvation Army Store’s Pantry.


“Two years ago, Crye-Leike’s Cleveland Branch Office was made aware of the fact that the majority of the donations made to the Salvation Army Store were clothing and household items, said Jo Organ, Managing Broker of the Cleveland Crye-Leike, Realtors office.  “Unfortunately, the public is not completely aware of the many services that this organization provides and their need for good, non-perishable food items.”


The Salvation Army has stores nationwide that in addition to selling donated items, they provide assistance to qualified needy families.  As part of the Salvation Army’s services for those who have been touched by tragedy and do not have other resources, they provide access to their Pantry for food and provide personal clothing items and furnishings.


“We are grateful to have such wonderful agents who are willing to pitch in and help out our community in whatever way possible,” said Organ. “We will continue to have various projects throughout the year and we hope that we can continue to make a difference in Cleveland.”


Participating agents joined with representatives from the food bank to celebrate the support with a photo outside the Salvation Army Center in Cleveland.
