As many of you know the Piedmont Triad Apartment Association does a food drive for Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina every year. Typically we concentrate our drive on the summer months, but what many of our members don’t realize is that the drive actually runs year-round.
We’re bringing this up because we’ve been contacted by a couple of member properties that are running holiday food collection drives in an effort to engage their residents while helping feed the hungry in the local community. They contacted us to get some advice on setting it up – of course we’re happy to help! – and it occurred to us that other properties might like to do the same thing. So, if you would like to do a food drive for the holidays then please feel free to give us a call and we’ll help coordinate it with Second Harvest. What a great way to serve the community while also engaging your residents!
We also want to remind you that we have a competition to see which management company can raise the most food during the year. We count all the food each management company and their communities raise from January 1 through December 31 and award the company that raises the most with the Owner’s Cup at our annual Diamond Awards banquet the following March. This is important to know because any food you raise during a holiday food drive, or any other food drive you do for that matter, will count towards your total for the year so please let us know how much you collect!
