Every month we love to share our appreciation for members of our multi-family network that are making a considerable impact on lessening food insecurity in their communities! We could not be more excited to announce that our community of the month goes to The Place at Savanna Springs!
As part of Move For Hunger’s Spring Into Action campaign, The Place at Savanna Springs hosted a food drive from March 22 to April 2 that brought in 1,356 lbs. of food!
This MC Companies property is pretty incredible not only for their donation, but it was their first time hosting a food drive with Move For Hunger! Yucca Moving & Storage Inc. came in to help deliver this huge donation to the St. Vincent de Paul Society food bank!
Out of the 24 MC Companies properties participating in our Spring campaign, they donated the most food out of all of them! However, the 24 MC Companies properties together have donated 10,921 lbs. of food. This is an amazing donation that will provide over 9,100 meals to those in need!
“I never get used to the unexpected gifts but I’m never surprised either,” says Lyn Marquis, Director of Philanthropy at MC Residential Communities. “I am so thankful for our employees and residents who continue to support the many causes we rally around as an organization.”
The Place at Savanna Springs is in Sierra Vista, AZ. Arizona has a food insecurity rate of 13.1%, which leaves 937,300 people food insecure. The food insecurity rate is even higher in Cochise County, where they are located, with 14.4% of the population being food insecure.
We could not be more delighted to be partnered with MC Companies because they have so many properties that are doing good for their local communities! The Place at Savanna Springs’ contribution will provide 1,130 meals to those experiencing hunger.
