Weichert, Realtors® – Lakepoint Contributes to Thanksgiving Food Drive to Benefit Dane County Community

— Evan Roeser

MADISON, Wisc. / December 7, 2023 – Giving back to the local community has been a cornerstone for the team at Weichert, Realtors® – Lakepoint, and this year the real estate brokerage continued its giving nature by spearheading efforts for the Goodman Community Center Thanksgiving Basket Drive.

The Weichert, Realtors® – Lakepoint office located on Atwood Avenue served as one of the drop-off locations where community members could donate to the drive. The company, led by Broker/Owner Rob Grether and Director of Operations Emily Ruzicka, made contributions to the drive, shopped for additional food items, and dropped all the donations off at the Goodman Community Center.

This year marked the 35th annual Goodman Community Center Thanksgiving Basket Drive. The initiative provided 4,000 Dane County families with delicious meals to enjoy over the holiday.

“It’s always great to come together with the local community to provide for those in need,” said Grether. “We are proud to give back to the Dane County community, and we hope to carry on this Thanksgiving tradition for many years to come.”
