Marine Toys for Tots at Blueridge Terrace Apartments
A few months ago one of our properties, Blueridge Terrace Apartments, was approached about being apart of the Marine Toys for Tots program. All they needed to do was have a couple of boxes ready to collect the donations and make sure they notified all of the residents.
With excitement, and maybe a little bit of hesitancy, they agreed to participate. Over the next few weeks donation after donation began to pour in, filling the boxes to capacity.
“I put out a notice in the newsletter about the box and some information about what was needed. Low and behold the toys, clothing, and donations came pouring in. They filled two big boxes with toys, and another big box with clothing, gloves, hats, socks, along with warm clothing in a variance of sizes. I was so overwhelmed at the joy it brought my residents. The money collected also went for coats, boots other essentials they may need.” -Linda Crabtree (Property Manager)
Soon after the toy drive was over Linda received word that Blueridge Terrace was given the Commander’s Award for outstanding support of the program. Each resident was sent the certificate below…
We love to see our properties come together and service the community in simple, yet profound ways like this. When you work alone you can accomplish some, but when you work together you can accomplish so much more.
We are so proud of Blueridge Terrace Apartments and the wonderful residents that gave so much of themselves.
