Make Giving Easy at Your Apartment Community
Thinking about hosting a charitable event at your community in the months to come? It's well worth your effort. Events that support local charities such as food, clothing and toy drives are important for several reasons:
They build community. These events give your residents an outlet for their generosity that they might not otherwise have. Do they know where they can donate canned food? Maybe not. Do they need a gentle reminder that they may have one too many winter coats? Probably so. Hosting charitable events makes it easier for your residents to give back and feel good about themselves.
It’s the right thing to do. So many of us are fortunate to have more than we need in just about everything- food, clothing, even a few bucks. Giving back to the community even in small ways can have a positive ripple effect through your area. If we all do something small when we can, the community will benefit in big ways. And we can all feel good about that.
