2015 - NAI Bergman Annual Holiday Food Drive



NAI Bergman Annual Holiday Food Drive

CINCINNATI, OH, December 29, 2015 ‒ NAI Bergman held its 11th annual holiday food drive on December 24th. There were 36 people who joined in supporting a worthy cause; contributing and helping deliver truckloads of food and staple items from a local food distributor to charities that serve the homeless in the Cincinnati area.

“Wanting to help the most needy in our community during the holiday season has continuously grown each year with participants and support; many people taking the time from their busy holiday season to help others; this compassion means so much at this time of year.” said Laurence Bergman

What began years ago as an annual event, with only two contributors, Laurence Bergman and Billy Gillman, has grown to include NAI Bergman associates, clients and friends. Ultimately, our goal is to have others associated with the NAI Global Network to follow what we have done to help the homeless outside of Cincinnati, NAI Bergman has reached out to the NAI Global network with over 400 offices in 55 countries to make this drive a worldwide event to help feed the homeless.

This year, food and other staple items were delivered to The Shelterhouse, Greater Cincinnati’s largest homeless shelter with the items going to both the men and women shelters, as well as the BLOC Ministries of Price Hill.  Billy Gillman and Laurence Bergman are hoping to get others involved in this effort as there are a multitude of shelters needing help.
