Farbman Group Launches Back to School Supply Drive


Published:

SOUTHFIELD — Southfield-based Farbman Group, a leading full-service real estate company that manages the Fisher Building and New Center One in Detroit, is sponsoring a back to school supply drive to benefit Beyond Basics, a school-centered program that brings targeted reading, writing and other literacy and self-expression programs to students in grades pre-K through 12 in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods. The initiative is taking place now through August 31, with collection sites at five local Farbman Group office buildings in Southfield, Bingham Farms, Troy and Detroit.  Andrew V. Farbman, CEO of Farbman Group, made the announcement.

 “With the overwhelming success of our school supply drive last year, we felt the need to bring back this opportunity and provide local children with the necessary materials they need to kick-off a successful school year,” said Farbman.

Farbman Group’s employees and their building tenants will fill collection boxes with all of the back to school supply staples including crayons, pens, pencils, erasers, notebooks, rulers, tissues and binders. Farbman Group is also encouraging community members to step up and make a donation by visiting any of their collection sites. At the end of the drive, the gathered supplies will be distributed to Beyond Basics.

“We are thrilled to serve as the beneficiary for this wonderful school supply drive,” said Pamela Good, President of Beyond Basics. “We thank the Farbman Group, their tenants and the community for their generosity. These donations will positively impact the work of our organization and help provide the necessary tools for students who are eager to learn and grow with the support of Beyond Basics.”

Donations can be dropped off at the following locations: Essex Centre, 28400 Northwestern Hwy., Southfield, Mich. 48034; Bingham Office Center, 30600-30800 Telegraph Rd., Bingham Farms, Mich. 48025; Oakland Commons, 20700 & 20750 Civic Center Dr., Southfield, Mich. 48076; Sheffield Office Park, 3250, 3290 and 3310 West Big Beaver Rd., Troy, Mich. 48084; Fisher Building, 3011 West Grand Blvd., Detroit, Mich. 48202.
