Coats Donated Just in Time for Snowzilla!

Calcagni’s New Homes Sales Team at Bridgewater Estates, Northford and Royal Oaks in Wallingford hosted winter coat drives on January 17th to benefit Master’s Manna in Wallingford.  The power of social “networking” paid off handsomely, with fellow agents, clients and the general public stopping by the two communities to donate gently used winter coats.  The spacious dressing room in Bridgewater Estate’s Dayton model doubled as our collection “drop-off zone”.

The coats were delivered to Master’s Closet filledManna in Wallingford just in time for last Saturday’s “Snowzilla” event that blanketed upwards of a foot of snow across central Connecticut.  Master’s Manna is a not for profit organization that serves individuals living in the greater Wallingford / Meriden area.

Northford Generosity:  Paying it Forward

Northford Generosity: Paying it Forward

Like a number of Connecticut towns, Northford is the gracious host to a new residential community represented by Calcagni Real Estate. As the company’s familiarity with the town expanded, so too did their determination to match the kindness of Northford’s motivational inhabitants.

Following the tragic death of her 18-year-old son Matt in 2009, Lynn Riordan developed a benevolent mission:  Building a Northford food pantry to aid the hungry in Matt’s name. This was, Riordan believed, an opportunity to display gratitude for the compassion she received from her hometown, and to reciprocate with a thoughtful gesture of her own. Lynn founded the food bank in the back of Northford’s Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church at 1311 Middletown Avenue, and with the generosity of local volunteers and businesses, doors opened on June 6th of this year.
