The Holiday Season is upon us! At PPM, we’ve been busy decorating the buildings, stuffing envelopes, hanging lights, and decorating our food drive boxes! We couldn’t be more excited to be participating, once again, in the Holiday Food Drive for the Lakeview Pantry. They are excited for us to participate as well, since last year our residents and staff pulled together to collect over 2 TONS of non-perishable food!
We hope this year will be no different. Our goal is to donate more than we did last year. Let’s do it! There are a lot of people in need this year and it’s our time to give back. We met with Jenny, the Community Outreach Coordinator for the Lakeview Food Pantry, who’s been with the organization for several years.
“We feed around 2,600-2,800 people per month. So, the food that gets donated is in someone’s home within the week. The donations we receive make an immediate difference.”
We got off to a great start, with a very generous donation made by Designo, a company PPM works closely with in the upkeep of our buildings. THANKS, Designo!!! Our collection boxes are decorated and up in the Lobbies of each building. Believe me, they could use something to weigh them down!
Jenny also mentioned, “Every year the need for this type of service is greater and greater. The outpouring of generosity from your tenants and the overall donations from PPM helps tremendously. We really, really appreciate it.”
