With such a widespread need, we have put together a plan to present options on
the best ways to give. Use the links below to directly help folks in our Coldwell Banker Family and those along the Texas coastline that have been affected by Hurricane Harvey!


  1. Ron Brown is the Broker / Owner of 2 Coldwell Banker offices. The office manager, Jen Rubinowitz, set up a gofundme page to provide food and hotels for our fellow agents there. Visit: HelpRockport.CBHarper.com

Tushes & Toes 2016 – Mission Accomplished

July 2016 — This year marked the 2nd Annual Cover Their Tushes and Toes Challenge for Debbie McNeal and Amy Thibodeaux in Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® Boerne Office. This year was a great success and we delivered almost twice as much as last year! Hill Country Daily Bread Ministries was very thankful for everything. In addition to monetary donations, socks and undergarments were collected. Amanda Asher with HCBD said they get excited when we tell them we’re working on a project for them because they know how much we do and our success in our efforts to help.

Visions For Hair Salon
The Boerne YMCA
Janet Oord
Jan & Fred McNeal

Debbie shared a wonderful story about an experience she had during this years event. “…thanks to some monetary donations my mom and I were able to do some shopping… and we made a pretty good haul. Something pretty special happened while we were checking out at the register,” says Debbie, “A complete stranger standing behind us in line saw us with 2 carts overflowing with socks and underwear. She overheard the cashier was asking us about what we were doing with all the items. As we were leaving the store, I was loading the car and the woman approached my mom. She told her how great she thought this was and how important it was for the children to have these essential items. She thanked us for what we were doing and handed us $20 to help purchase more items. Thank you for the kindness of strangers!”

Tushes and Toes was wrapped up on July 10th and they were even featured in The Boerne Star!

FVPS Donation Drive For Women & Children

In this year’s “Changing Lives, Donation Drive” we, at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS®, strive to continue our efforts in giving back to the community. This year-long opportunity to give back is designed to allow an open door for those who would like to get involved. Semi-annually (July and February) we will have scheduled pick-ups through Family Violence Prevention Screen Shot 2016-07-08 at 12.01.15 PMServices to donate the most urgently needed items.

Family Violence Prevention Services has operated since 1977. Their mission is to break the cycle of violence and to strengthen families by providing the necessary tools for self-sufficiency through delivery of emergency shelter, transitional housing, education, effective parenting education, and specialized intervention with youth and the elderly. They serve more than 8,000 adults and children each year. 

“Families are our society’s most basic and important unit. All things impacting our society have their genesis in the family. FVPS has the incredible and rewarding responsibility to serve families and coordinate with our community to deliver services that mend the body, restore the spirit, and help each person recognize their worth. Reaching out to people of all ages and backgrounds, educating our community about domestic violence, and offering comprehensive programs that support long-term change is what we do. Our work with children is some of the most critical, as it is with them that the best chance exists to reduce domestic violence for generations to come.”

We are just getting started and we encourage anyone who would like to give back to contact us at PR@cbharper.com.
