(Dec. 22, 2017) The over 200 members of the Coastal Association of Realtors who attended the group’s 2017 holiday party at Seacrets on 49th Street, donated 497 pounds of nonperishable food items and over $450 to the Maryland Food Bank of the Eastern Shore.

All members attending the Dec. 6 party were asked to bring at least one nonperishable food item. The 497 pounds of food collected is the equivalent to 414 meals, according to the Maryland Food Bank of the Eastern Shore. The more than $450 raised throughout the event will go toward CAR’s 2017-18 fundraising efforts to support the food bank.

“According to the Maryland Food Bank, there are over 682,000 people in our state who do not have enough to eat,” said CAR President Joel Maher. “It’s important that we help our fellow Marylanders during the holiday season and throughout the rest of the year.”
