Help Support United Veterans Beacon House

UVBHAffiliated sales associates and employees from all 15 offices of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage on Long Island are giving back to local veterans through volunteer efforts as part of the company’s Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares initiatives, the company’s charitable arm.

The company is collecting them for veterans and families who are residing in housing provided by United Veterans Beacon House (UVBH), an organization that provides transitional, safe housing for homeless veterans and their families at locations throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties.

“As real estate professionals, we are keepers of the American dream and veterans are the defenders of that dream, so what better way to support them than to help make their homes comfortable,” said Laura Rittenberg, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage on Long Island. “It is an honor and privilege to be associated with the United Veterans Beacon House and to be able to help provide some comfort in their lives.”

As part of a “Hometown Heroes Linen Drive,” the company has been collecting sets of linens since the beginning of January. Their mission is to obtain 700 new sheet sets, 700 new pillows, 700 new bath towels and 700 new comforters or blankets by July 4. Members of the community, neighbors, family and friends are invited to participate in this effort.

Presently, the offices have collected approximately 22 percent of the total goal. The public is invited to help with this drive and bring in donations to their local Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office in Babylon, Bellmore, Dix Hills, East Hills, Great Neck, Huntington, Manhasset, Massapequa Park, Mount Sinai, Northport, Port Washington, Ronkonkoma, East Setauket, Smithtown or Syosset. For exact office locations, visit
