San Francisco, CA, September 10, 2015 – Zephyr Real Estate and Old Republic Title recently partnered to collect back-to-school backpacks for the San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center. These were very special backpacks because they were fully loaded with all the necessary school supplies for the school year. From pens and paper to pencils and binders, 175 filled backpacks were collected throughout the San Francisco offices of both companies for children in need.

“Thank you to you, your Managers and associates throughout San Francisco for their very generous donations to our backpack drive last month,” commented Greg DeMartini, Senior Vice President and San Francisco County Manager of Old Republic. “Each of your offices had a bin, which was overflowing.”

Both Old Republic and Zephyr are well known for their generosity in giving back to their community, and the backpack drive was yet another symbol of that commitment.

“Zephyr’s team is known for always coming through, and this very worthwhile endeavor was no exception,” stated Randall Kostick, President of Zephyr. “We’re deeply invested in the community, and are happy we could support our local kids.”

The San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center was created in 1998 when two agencies, the San Francisco Child Abuse Council and the TALK Line Family Support Center, joined forces in a remodeled firehouse in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood. Today, the Prevention Center provides support services to children and families; education for children, caregivers and service providers; and advocacy for systems improvement and coordination.
