Security Properties Residential held a portfolio-wide Food Drive at 78 of their properties in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Oklahoma, Oregon, Nevada, Tennessee, Utah, and Washington throughout December and January.

These 78 locations collected a grand total of 3,774 lbs. of food, which equates to 3,145 meals for their neighbors in need! All My Sons Moving & Storage, Eco Movers, a National Van Lines agent, Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage, an Allied Van Lines agent, Golden Services LLCAboda, Smooth MovesAlexander’s Mobility Services, an Atlas Van Lines agent, Pikes Peak Moving & Storage Co., a Wheaton Van Lines agent, Note 16, Duet, and our friends from different CORT branches all over the western United States delivered the donations to their local food banks.

Security Properties Residential is a part of our Multi-Family Program. People throw away a lot of things when they move, including perfectly good food! We’re now partnering with more than 700 multi-family locations all over the country to make sure this food does not go to waste.

When a resident gives notice that they will be moving out, the property managers provide them with a program letter and a food collection bag. They are encouraged to donate any non-perishable food items that they will not be taking.

Once a property has collected a few bags, they contact us, and we connect them with a local transportation partner who will pick up the donations and deliver them to a local food bank.

More than 41 million Americans struggle with food insecurity each day. A huge thank you to Security Properties Residential and everyone who made this food drive such a success!
