RMK Management Properties Collect 1,000 + LBS. of Food

April 1, 2019 | 10:39am

In February, RMK Management celebrated Valentine's Day by holding Spread the Love Food Drives at 20 of their 20 properties in Illinois, Minnesota, and Indiana.

Throughout the month, they asked their residents to donate non-perishable food, especially peanut butter and jelly, to help provide meals for their neighbors in need. Peanut butter is one of the most highly-requested items by food banks because it's kid-friendly and is a great source of protein!

The RMK Management properties collected a grand total of 1,010 lbs. of food, which is the equivalent of 840 meals! The Chicago and Minneapolis branches of CORT, as well as the Chicago branch of Noffs/Atlantic Relocation Systems and Prager Moving & Storage, Atlas Van Lines agents, and Shur-Way Moving & Storage, a National Van Lines agent, brought the peanut butter and jelly donations to their local food banks.

More than 41 million people in America, including nearly 13 million children, are food insecure.  Thank you to RMK Management, their properties, CORT, Noffs/Atlantic Relocation Systems, Atlas Van Lines, Shur-Way Moving & Storage, and National Van Lines for helping us spread the love and fight hunger in the United States!
