Each month, Move For Hunger chooses a community that displays a dedication to ending hunger. For this January, Sherwood at Iron Point Apartments was awarded Community of the Month!
Sherwood at Iron Point residents donated 820 lbs of nonperishables throughout February. This will provide 985 meals to the River City Food Bank in Folsom, California. Thanks to CORT for transporting the donations!
"Our property management company, FPI's mission statement is grounded in the acronym HEART (Humility, Excellence, Accountability, Respect, and Teamwork),” said Cindy Moore, Community Director. “Partnering with Move For Hunger is in alignment with these core values. We gratefully serve our community on a regular basis by leasing homes and providing services to our Residents, vendors, and team members.”
Sherwood at Iron Point Apartments, an FPI Management property, has been a partner with Move For Hunger since 2018. Since joining our network, they have collected nearly 1,750lbs of donations, equalling over 1,300 meals, for local food insecure communities.
Moore continued, “To serve those who are less fortunate or have fallen on hard times is an absolute honor. And, to do it at a larger scale where there are multiple corporations participating and contributing is extremely heartwarming to experience and be a part of."
In California, more than 3.5 million people are food insecure, with over 1 in 8 children not knowing where their next meal will come from. We’re beyond grateful for every community that has joined us in the fight against hunger!
