Farbman Partners with Beyond Basics for Coat Drive


SOUTHFIELD — Farbman Group, a leading full-service real estate company, has partnered with nonprofit Beyond Basics to collect coat donations for their annual coat drive. Beyond Basics aims to assist at-risk children by developing fundamental reading and writing skills. The company has placed collection boxes at numerous Farbman Group buildings throughout metro Detroit and will collect donated coats from now until Nov. 7.

Farbman is collecting new and gently used coats in sizes 3T through adult. Other winter items including hats, scarves, gloves and mittens are also welcome to be placed in the donation boxes.

“Farbman Group is extremely proud to put the call out to the local community and our building tenants to donate coats in partnership with Beyond Basics,” said Andrew V. Farbman, CEO of Farbman Group. “We saw this coat drive as an opportunity to positively impact the lives of our neighbors in need with warm coats during the cold Michigan winter months.”

Donations can be dropped off at the following locations: Essex Centre, Bingham Office Center, Sheffield Office Park, and Fisher Building.
