Prudential Americana Group, one of the country’s largest Prudential Real Estate franchises, participated in the Toys for Tots holiday drive. The company, its real estate sales executives and team members donated about 1,000 new, unwrapped toys for Las Vegas children.

"The generosity of Prudential Americana Group’s team members is unmatched in Nevada," said CEO Mark Stark. "When they hear of a need, they come together to help their fellow citizens. Combined, our offices donated approximately $15,000 in toys to give Southern Nevada children a happy holiday."

The company is known for its service to the community and supports organizations including Opportunity Village, Susan G. Komen Foundation and the Sunshine Kids. Hundreds of Prudential’s real estate sales executives also donate to individual charities and give a percentage of their earnings with every home sale to nonprofit organizations, amounting to thousands of dollars donated every year.

Stark owns the sixth largest Prudential franchise in North America, which includes Prudential Americana Group in Nevada and Prudential Arizona Properties, both the largest Prudential franchises in their respective states. Combined, the company has 21 offices and 2,000 real estate sales executives. It has been recognized by JD Power and Associates multiple times for its commitment to customer service.
