Helping through the Holidays

By December 3, 2019 May 28th, 2020 No Comments

During the holidays, it’s easy to get caught up in finding the perfect gift for a loved one, or checking each holiday party and family gathering off your list. However, we can’t ignore that the season is made for giving. This year, Presidium wanted to spread the love twice as far by volunteering to help their neighbors and community members have an extra special holiday season and a brighter tomorrow.

 

Annual Turkey Giveaway

Thanksgiving is not only a time to give thanks, but a time to give back. With the hope of bringing more of our community members together around a holiday meal, every November for the past five years you can find the Presidium team passing out frozen turkeys across all of our residential and commercial spaces throughout the country. Presidium’s co-CEOs and co-founders John Griggs and Cross Moceri joined our Community Directors to hand out nearly 1,000 turkeys to our residents and tenants, totaling almost 4,000 turkeys since Presidium kicked off the program in 2014.

Toys for Tots

 A small gesture goes a long way! Each year, the Presidium corporate and property offices participate in the Toys for Tots toy drive. The Toys for Tots mission is to, “deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.” Every December, Presidium employees and residents come together to collect toys, books and other gifts for these children, hoping to make their holiday extra special.

Presidium Diaper Drive

This December, Presidium hosted a diaper drive at Villas at Tenison Park Apartments located in Dallas, TX, benefitting Diapers Etc.

 

Diapers Etc. exists to provide diapers, feminine hygiene products and other important goods not covered by government programs or other service providers. Diapers, Etc. has distributed over 200,000 items to hundreds of families over the last two years at the Owenwood Farm & Neighbor Space. Presidium hopes to continue on this tradition of helping families receive the assistance they are looking for!
