Starting 2024 Out Strong With Our Multifamily Food Drives

May 21, 2024

Our dedicated network of multifamily communities across the U.S. have started out the year with a bang making an impact on local communities. Our multifamily properties are committed to helping us fight hunger and have already donated over 20,000 lbs of food, equaling 16,666 meals, so far this year. With a network of over 2,700 communities, as our Multifamily Program continues to grow, so does our impact. 


Earth Day 2024 

Our multifamily community 42 Hundred on the Lake, with RMK Management, hosted an Earth Day Food Drive 2024 and collected 126 lbs of food donations. This brought 100 meals back to the community of Eastern Wisconsin.


Spread the Love

Our top three communities from this year are Wellington Parkside, Villas at Green Valley, and Cass Lake Shore Club! 

Over 330 meals and 400 lbs of jars were donated by Wellington Parkside, a Dolben Company property, to the Council of Social Concern in Massachusetts.

The Villas at Green Valley, with Maxx Properties, donated 280 lbs of peanut and jelly to Hopelink Food Distribution Center. This is over 200 meals for the community of Nevada. Cass Lake Shore Club, with Village Green, collected 270 lbs, equal to 225 meals, to Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan.  


Spring Into Action

Our annual Spring Into Action Food Drive encourages households to spring clean and donate their non-perishables to those in need. During Spring Into Action 2024, Prime Group Spring completed 25 events and donated over 3,400 lbs of food. The community with the most pounds donated is Sterling Pointe Apartments who donated 602 lbs to Oregon Food Bank. 

Two donations were made to Tualatin Food Pantry by Sunset Summits Apartments with 245 lbs and The Frank Estate with 205 lbs. These three communities were able to turn those pounds into 875 meals for the community of Oregon!

 

We are beyond grateful for our network and partners’ commitment to helping us fight hunger and reduce food waste. With collective efforts, we’re able to make a real difference and impact in local communities struggling with food insecurity. Let’s celebrate the highlights of our Multifamily Program so far this year!


We couldn’t do any of this without our network of Multifamily communities and partners. Are you interested in joining the fight against hunger? Join our Multifamily Program
