William Raveis Real Estate of Guilford is Collecting Backpacks for Victims of Recent Hurricanes
Posted on September 22nd, 2017

​On behalf of the William Raveis Real Estate's Guilford office, John Izzo will be collecting backpacks for the victims of the recent hurricanes. Backpacks should Include any items that a person may need in the aftermath of a natural disaster, including small inexpensive items that don't mean much to us, but mean the world to someone who has nothing. Suggestions include non-perishable food, clothing or personal items (socks, band-aids, soup packets, energy bars, flip flops). All items must be delivered in a backpack. No individual items can be accepted. 

In addition to donating at the William Raveis office, North Branford High school has offered to do a homeroom challenge throughout the entire North Branford school system.  A North Branford teacher, Amy Farotti will coordinate, collect and manage the school challenge on behalf of the the William Raveis Guilford Office. The challenge will take place on the next three Fridays, September 29th,  October 6th and October 13th.

A principal, in a town near Fort Myers, FL , who's school and community were destroyed during the hurricane, will be the recipient of the backpacks. North Branford plans to adopt this town as part of their challenge, and will be their focus. In the event that there is an overwhelming response to the collection, any remaining items will be delivered to Puerto Rico.

If you are interested in donating a backpack, email John Izzo at or drop them off at the William Raveis office located at 21 Whitfield Street in Guilford by October 9th.
