“Jules and I were thrilled when our team came to us with this charitable idea. Teaming up with our neighbors in the building made the project even more impactful,” stated RARE Charleston Managing Broker, Forrest Edwards.
“When we learned of how many we were helping feed it truly warmed our hearts. We plan to do other drives in 2016,” added Ravenel Associates President, Jules Deas.
