The holidays are a time to celebrate with family, a time to be thankful for what we have, and to assist those who need help. Our friends at AVE properties hosted a Season of Giving Food Drive in 11 of their locations from New Jersey and Pennsylvania to Texas and California.
Combined they collected 3,600 lbs of food which equals 3,000 meals to hungry families during the holiday season.
Starting late November through mid-December, AVE Blue Bell Villas took the crown for collecting the most food with over 1,000 lbs at just the one property. A special thank you to Wayne Moving & Storage who took the food from the location in north Philly to the West Chester Food Pantry.
AVE, a Korman Community, was one of the first multi-family partners of Move For Hunger back in 2015. Since then, their properties have helped provide more than 35,000 meals to those in need.
The winter is always a difficult time for hungry families. People may have to wait in lines in the cold air to get food and many food insecure people are also homeless and sleep outside even in inclement weather. On any given night, there are more than 500,000 people sleeping on the streets in America along with 42 million people overall who are food insecure.
AVE is a shining example of the impact property management companies can have on their communities. Want to join our multi-family network? Click here to learn more.
