One special story came during the donation period. The Marietta real estate office had closed for the evening, but co-broker/owner Denny Jones had gone back to the office for something. When he arrived, he found a mother and her two young children waiting in a car outside the office.
Apparently, they passed by the RE/MAX Greater Atlanta office regularly, saw the Toys for Tots collection sign, and the children wanted to personally put their bag of toys in the box. They wanted to make sure other children would have a good Christmas. Because it’s a real estate office, the mother figured someone would show up sooner or later to let them in—and she was right!
“We were so touched by the idea of these children wanting to help other children. It was just additional confirmation that this is a cause we will continue supporting every year.”
