Coldwell Banker’s CARES donates to Cape PAL program

By Staff | Nov 16, 2011

Coldwell Banker’s CARES Foundation recently donated $1,500 to the Cape Coral Police Department’s Police Athletic League, or PAL.

The PAL program, which has been around for more than 16 years, has provided a positive place for the city’s children, according to officials. Many PAL alumni have gone on to lead successful productive lives as a result of the mentorship provided by the program.

Some of the PAL children have even gone on to the United States Military Academy in West Point, N.Y., as well as the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. This is quite a feat for a relatively small PAL chapter.

“Community support is the lifeblood of the PAL program,” Lt. Tony Sizemore, the spokesman for the CCPD, said in prepared statement.

“We cannot say thank you enough for the generosity of Coldwell Banker’s CARES Foundation,” he said. “Their donation will directly impact Cape Coral’s youth in a positive way.”

“Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate, the leading real estate company in Florida, has established the Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate CARES foundation to provide charitable contributions and funding initiatives to a wide array of non-profit organizations in the communities and neighborhoods we serve,” foundation officials reported in the prepared statement.

“Our mission is to give back to our local communities by providing charitable contributions and volunteer support, thus strengthening and reinforcing our commitment to creating a lasting source of unity, hope and vision in Florida,” they said.
