Having just wrapped up the holiday season, a time of warmth and giving, our hearts remain full of memories filled with joy, kindness and community support — our favorite way to begin the new year. At Presidium, while we’re passionate about creating vibrant communities, we appreciate the opportunity to contribute in more ways than one to the communities we serve. In an extraordinary display of generosity and compassion, our teams across the nation united to give back all season long, leading to results that were truly humbling.
A Thanksgiving to Remember
Our annual Thanksgiving initiative was a simple yet heartfelt effort to add a little extra warmth to the holiday tables in Austin, Dallas, Houston and Biddeford, Maine. With 117 turkeys, 218 pies and 182 gift cards distributed, the significant amount of donations seemed small compared to the huge smiles on our residents’ faces, symbolizing our small but meaningful gesture of appreciation for their presence in our community.
Spreading Christmas Cheer with Toys for Tots
The joy of the season continued with our participation in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots program. Thanks to the collective efforts of our team and generous donors, we collected and donated 50 new toys in hopes of making the holidays a bit brighter for children in need.
Caring Through Our Canned Food Drive
This winter, our canned food drive was a heartfelt effort to support those in need within our communities. A remarkable 642 items were gathered, all of which were donated to local food banks. In Houston, our contributions aided the Houston Food Bank, an organization that plays a crucial role in helping approximately one million people in southeast Texas. Meanwhile, in Dallas, our donations supported Dallas LIFE, a foundation committed to assisting homeless individuals and families on their journey toward recovery and self-sufficiency.
Making an Impact
As we look back on these efforts, it’s the stories of individuals and families whose holidays were brightened because of these initiatives that stand out. Toys for Tots, Houston Food Bank and Dallas LIFE are more than just organizations; they are beacons of hope and support in our communities. Their work, along with our efforts, underscores a shared commitment to making a difference in the lives of those who need it most.
As we step into the new year, our hearts are full of hope and our minds are set on continuing this journey of giving and support. We are reminded that the spirit of the holidays is not just about celebration, but also about extending a helping hand and fostering a sense of community.
Thank you to everyone who participated, contributed, and supported these initiatives. Your generosity has made a real difference, and we are excited to uphold and expand these efforts together in the years to come.
Wishing everyone a joyous and prosperous New Year!
