Every fall, Saunders & Associates holds a successful Thanksgiving Donation Drive, typically collecting donations of nonperishable food at their five East End offices. Last year's event resulted in the donation of over 5,000 food items to local pantries.

Because of the pandemic, the Hamptons' largest locally owned and operated real estate firm decided to support the pantries by presenting a fundraising campaign on GoFundMe. "We originally started with a goal of $10,000 and with the overwhelming support from the community, we surpassed that within one week of launching the GoFundMe page," Steve Glick, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Saunders & Associates, noted. "The need was greater than ever this year and we hope these donations will help fill the food pantries throughout the season." Saunders agents and staff, as well as community members contributed to the fundraising efforts.

Saunders & Associates' 6th annual Thanksgiving Donation Drive raised $60,000, which was donated to nine food pantries, including Bridgehampton Community Food Pantry, Bridgehampton Child Care and Recreational Center, Church of the Immaculate Conception Westhampton Beach, East Hampton Food Pantry, Springs East Hampton Food Pantry, Montauk Food Pantry, Heart of the Hamptons Southampton Food Pantry, Hampton Bays Food Pantry, and Shelter Island Food Pantry.

"Thank you to everyone who contributed," Glick added.
