If we can help one family go to bed without having to worry about where their next meal is coming from we have done what we have set out to do.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 03, 2012
For the third year in a row, TLC Management Co., a Chicago-based property management company, is one of more than 700 Chicagoland organizations that has chosen to host a food drive this year to help aid the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD) reach their goal of giving 1,000,000 meals to support those in need.
Located as far North as Evanston and as far South as Hyde Park/South Shore, TLC Management currently owns and operates thirty-four Chicago apartment buildings in a multitude of Chicago neighborhoods, all of which are located on or near the beautiful Lake Michigan lakefront. As of November 19th, a festively decorated box, along with a list of acceptable food items, has been residing in each of these buildings’ lobbies, encouraging TLC Management tenants and employees alike to donate what they can to this season’s holiday food drive. TLC’s food drive will last until December 19, just before the Christmas holiday. In this time period, TLC will accept as many GFFD approved non-perishables as possible. Once the food drive concludes, all apartment buildings will drop off the donations they have collected to the Depository itself or to one of its several food pantries or soup kitchens.
TLC’s goal is to raise awareness for the Greater Chicago Food Depository in general. Many businesses host food drives only during the holiday season. However, people are hungry all year around. In fact, it is currently estimated that 1 in 6 individuals in Cook County are food insecure. TLC hopes that by hosting an annual food drive, such as this, they can inspire as many people as possible to donate and volunteer with the GCFD throughout the year.
“Our goal with the food drive is, of course, to help fight hunger in the communities we serve,” noted Stuart Handler, CEO of TLC Management. “If we can help one family go to bed without having to worry about where their next meal is coming from we have done what we have set out to do.”
