Presidium is passionate about fostering a sense of community and working to improve the quality of life in our surrounding communities. Since we often say, “the best way to predict the future is to create it,” we wanted to take this opportunity and highlight local organizations that have and will continue to improve the wellbeing of our local communities.
Oak Hill Animal Rescue
Presidium is closely involved with Oak Hill Animal Rescue, a no-kill shelter that is family owned and operated in Rockwall, Texas. Presidium has the honor of working with the Oak Hill team to show compassion in action and display ways to make a difference in the lives of animals. Our team has worked with Oak Hill by waiving pet fees on adopted animals, helping to create marketing campaigns for Oak Hill with the intention of increasing adoption rates, and hosting pet adoption events at Presidium properties in Dallas. Presidium hopes to continue working with Oak Hill and encouraging future pet owners to focus their attention on no-kill shelters to provide these pets with a fresh start and a loving home!
Central Texas Food Bank
With the hope of bringing more of our community members together around a holiday meal this season, throughout the month of November, Presidium hosted a food drive to benefit the Central Texas Food Bank in Austin, Texas. Through this initiative, Presidium collected 379 pounds of food, which in turn created 316 meals for less fortunate families around the Thanksgiving holiday.
Children’s Shelter of San Antonio
This past November, all of our San Antonio properties came together to host a fundraising carwash for the Children’s Shelter of San Antonio, an organization that provides emergency shelter and therapeutic foster care for local children and youth. While the carwash was free, patrons tipped whatever they could to benefit the children’s shelter. Presidium is proud to assist in such a great cause!
Holiday Cheer at Children’s Hospital Dallas
This year Presidium’s Dallas teams delivered holiday cards, coloring books and holiday cheer to the patients at Children’s Health Dallas. Our community members generously donated their time to create these cheerful holiday gift baskets for children in need of a smile.
For more than 100 years, Children’s’ Health has been committed to making life better for children in our community, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to support their cause!
School Supply Drives (Portfolio-Wide)
Each year, Presidium hosts back-to-school events across several of our properties where our team members give away backpacks, pens, pencils, binders and more to our community members. As Summer 2017 came to a close, Presidium assisted families by donating school supplies to our community members, helping them not only to be prepared for, but also excited for the upcoming school year.
We look forward to the future as it continues to grow and create even more opportunities for our team, peers and community members. A determined and passionate commitment to bettering our future drives our desire to take action and support programs that empower our youth.
