POINT PLEASANT BEACH, NEW JERSEY (October 30, 2006) – Diane Turton, Realtors will once again be sponsoring its Turton Giving Tree project during the upcoming holiday giving season. Starting November 10 through December 10, Diane Turton, Realtors will be gathering unwrapped toys, gifts and new clothing for local children and teens who are in need, and placing them under giving trees located in the company’s New Jersey sales offices throughout Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Offices are open seven days a week from 9 AM to 5 PM.Diane Turton, Realtors has partnered with two non-profit organizations serving Monmouth and Ocean Counties that will distribute the holiday gifts, including the Salvation Army of Ocean County and Family and Children Service. These organizations assist many area families who are in need. Often these families only have resources to purchase the basic essentials of life. “We collected several hundred gifts last year,” said Diane Turton, president and broker/owner of Diane Turton, Realtors. “It gave us such joy to give these gifts to these charitable organizations to help fulfill the dreams and wishes of the children in our community. Our team has been looking forward to our giving tree activity all year, since last year was such a success.”Each giving tree is decorated with house-shaped ornaments containing information about gifts that children and teens have requested this holiday season.“We are so delighted Diane Turton, Realtors has partnered with us again to help bring the joy of the holidays to every household in our area,” explained Salvation Army Captain Lorie Travaglino. “Diane Turton, Realtors’ contributions last year truly made a world of difference in our campaign to help those in need.”Similar sentiments were expressed by Executive Director Brooke Tarabour of Family and Children Service. She reported that families in crisis sometimes feel alone, sad and forgotten during this time of year when many of us are rejoicing. Generous efforts by Diane Turton, Realtors and many giving people can help make the holidays brighter in our communities.
