NAI Earle Furman Hosts Halloween Trick-or-Treat With a Charitable Twist
Oct 31, 2012
GREENVILLE, SC - October 31, 2012 - On Monday, NAI Earle Furman, a Greenville-based commercial real estate firm, had football players, cheerleaders, cowboys, Peter Pan and Tinker Bell, and other costumed characters roaming its halls.
The company invited the children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends of employees to come to its Greenville headquarters to trick-or-treat dressed in full Halloween costume. About 20 children participated in the event, which included a candy trail so that the children could parade through the office and show off their costumes. The trail ended in a conference room where the kids, brokers and staff enjoyed some Halloween treats.
In exchange for the candy and treats, the trick-or-treaters were asked to bring dental supplies, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss, to donate to United Ministries. During a holiday season in which the emphasis is on sweets and candy, dental health isn’t typically top-of-mind.
The children delivered: over 45 supplies were donated. The supplies were taken to United Ministries on Tuesday for distribution.
“NAI Earle Furman is proud of the involvement of its brokers and staff in many community-wide charitable efforts and organizations. Philanthropy shouldn’t be viewed as an option – it’s the duty of all good citizens, and that extends to our children. As they enjoy their treats this holiday, we hope that they also learn a lesson about helping others,” stated Jason Richards, NAI Earle Furman’s Chief Operating Officer.
NAI Earle Furman plans to make the event an annual occurrence with a charitable tie-in each year.
