WILMINGTON, DE – Wilmington-based developer Buccini/Pollin Group, Inc. (BPG), held an afternoon of celebration for their 25th Anniversary on September 28, 2018. Associates enjoyed a restaurant crawl along Market Street that concluded at the new Residences at Mid-town Park. During the celebration, associates took the time to participate in something near and dear to the Co-Founders of the organization, Rob and Chris Buccini’s hearts; community service for the local children in Wilmington, DE.
Each associate put together a bucket of love consisting of toys, art supplies, activities and a note of encouragement for a local child exposed to domestic violence. BPG associate Mandi Lemons teamed up with Buckets of Love, a Jefferson award-winning local charity founded by two kid sisters from Delaware, striving to bring happiness to children in need of joy.
Mandi Lemon’s loves the opportunities BPG utilizes as a platform to give back locally. “It was truly a gift for our associates to have the opportunity to work with these two inspirational young ladies that are Co-Founders of a charity impacting hundreds of children annually.”
CHILD Inc. the recipient of the 200 buckets of love, will be distributing the buckets to children exposed to homelessness, domestic violence and abuse in Wilmington, DE. CHILD Inc. is devoted to protecting the victims and treating those responsible for acts of domestic violence in order to help children heal.
