Wilmington-based developer Buccini/Pollin Group, Inc. (BPG) celebrated its 25th anniversary on Sept. 28, first with a restaurant crawl along Market Street and then with an act of community service.
Each BPG 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 Awards-winning local charity founded by 11-year-old Reagan Garnsey and her 7-year-old sister, Payton (See Worth Recognizing, pg. 12).
“It was truly a gift for our associates to have the opportunity to work with these two inspirational young ladies that co-founded a charity impacting hundreds of children annually,” said Lemons.
CHILD Inc. was the recipient of the buckets. “We are thrilled to receive the 200 Buckets of Love for the children we serve,” said Lori Sitler, CHILD Inc. executive director. “Our heartfelt thanks goes out to the young sisters who founded Buckets of Love and to the leadership and staff of the Buccini/Pollin Group for their service and commitment to Delaware’s children.”
