September, 2013 –  McCOLLY Real Estate, on behalf of the McCOLLY Foundation, would like to thank everyone who participated in our Community Baby Shower to support the St. Monica Home on the Franciscan St. Margaret Health-Dyer campus. The baby shower collection began on August 1st, and continued through August 30, 2013. The collection sites were amongst the 17 McCOLLY Real Estate offices in Northwest Indiana and the Chicago Southland area.

Melissa Coduti, second from right, said she came up with the plan after checking online for community donation ideas and a fitting area agency to be the recipient. The company also distributed a press release, made posters and put notices on social media, advertising the drive.

Because of your efforts, the McCOLLY Foundation was able to donate thousands of diapers and wipes, numerous baby hygiene products, clothes and various baby items.

The McCOLLY Real Estate DeMotte and Tinley Park offices held an office meeting with a baby shower theme as part of the McColly Foundation Community Baby Shower. The business portion of the meeting followed with a delicious taco bar carry in shared by all.

Over the past 30+ years, McColly Real Estate has annually contributed to the March of Dimes, American Cancer Society, Salvation Army, American Heart Association and the Special Olympics of Illinois, to name just a few great causes. In 2011, McColly Real Estate formally established the McColly Foundation to benefit families in need in the local communities that McCOLLY Real Estate serves.
