Every Bite Counts

From the week after Thanksgiving until just before Christmas, Dona Federico and her team at Select Sotheby’s International Realty, The Dona Frank Team, held a food and more drive to benefit the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York. Based in the Albany area, the regional food bank distributes food and more to over 200 of its member food banks across the region.

“We want to thank Dona, who has been a friend and supporter of the food bank for many years, and her team at Select Sotheby’s International Realty, for an incredible drive. We are grateful for this wonderful donation, especially at this difficult time for so many. Every pound of food, paper products, and more, will help feed a hungry family and give them the items they need in their daily lives.” Said Mark Quant, Executive Director of the Regional Food Bank of NENY.

The Dona Frank Team donated over 1,000 pounds of food in four weeks, thanks to neighbors, friends, family and clients, along with financial donations. Items included pet food as well as human food, and much of the pet food will be donated to The Capital District Humane Association, a 100% volunteer pet adoption group that has been close to Dona’s heart for many years. This year she was motivated by the memory of her two best pals, Ralphie and Rocky, two Jack Russell Terriers she adopted from the group over 10 years ago.

Donations are still being accepted at both locations, if you are interested in helping, contact Dona Federico directly at: dona.federico@selectsir.com or 518.421.6753
