AMLI Residential Holds Thanksgiving Food Drive

December 18, 2019 | 12:03pm

AMLI Residential, a member of our Multi-Family Apartment Community Program partners, held their first ever Thanksgiving Food Drive between November 11th through the 25th. All six Chicago area locations participated in the event, and together they collected a total of 1,466 lbs. of food, which will provide more than 1,200 meals to their neighbors in need!

AMLI also held a social media contest to see which property could come up with the most creative donation display, with AMLI River North claiming the title. 

Our partners at CORT volunteered to pick up all of the donations from each property and delivered them to a local food bank.

In Cook County, more than 630,000 people are facing hunger, including 1 in 8 children. We want to thank the employees of all of AMLI Residential’s Chicago locations for their generous donations, and to the volunteers from CORT of Chicago for assisting with the transportation!
