Every month, Move for Hunger spotlights a community that shines in their fight against hunger. The May 2021 Community of the Month is The Sovereign at Regent Square!
Earlier this year, The Sovereign at Regent Square, a Windsor Communities property, took part in Windsor Communities Spread the Love Food Drive and Fundraiser, donating 300 pounds of food, or 250 meals to Houston Food Bank. The purpose of this campaign is to collect as much peanut butter as possible since it lasts a long time and is often a food bank-requested item. Overall, the Windsor Communities properties collected nearly 3,000 pounds of food and fundraised $3,436, totalling almost 11,200 meals.
Thanks to Ward North American- Houston, part of Ward North American, a North American Van Lines agent, for delivering the food. They won Mover of the Month this past April and for good reason; since they joined Move For Hunger in August 2019, they have transported more than 50,000 pounds of food, or more than 42,300 meals.
Texas as a whole has a food insecurity rate of 14.1% meaning 1 in 7 people are going hungry. In the Houston area alone, nearly 1 million people are going hungry, 365,370 of whom are children.
We are happy to work with The Sovereign at Regent Square, Windsor Properties, and Ward North American and are thankful for their decision to support their community.
