Milestone Giving 2017: Santa Claus visits Milestone residents

Milestone Giving 2017: Girl hugs Santa at Covington Square.

Santa gets a big hug from an appreciative girl at Covington Square during Milestone Giving 2017.

Tis the second annual Milestone Giving event. Santa made his list and checked it twice and then drove his sleigh to Mt. Pleasant Apartments in Oregon City, Covington Square Apartments in Aloha and Somerset West Apartments in Tanasbourne to spread some Christmas cheer to a few families who needed a boost.

We put the word out to all of our managers and residents. We wanted to know who was experiencing hard times. Last year we helped six families and an elderly veteran. This year, our outreach extended to thirteen households in Vancouver, Gresham, Portland, Aloha and Oregon City. We are lucky to have truly good, residents. It was humbling to help a family who lost all of their possessions in a fire. Our hearts warmed to see a girl give Santa Claus a big hug and then offer him a candy cane from her Christmas tree. Older siblings proudly looked after their younger brothers and sisters. And the little siblings reciprocated with their adoration.

 

As we head into 2018

Let’s remember, whether you are a resident, client, employee, friend or relative, we are in the community business. A community is strong when its bonds are strong. Let us not forget this when it is not the holiday season.  We are committed to always improving our communities. This starts with caring, loving our neighbors, and building relationships.

Special Thanks

We want to thank all of the volunteers who bought presents and wrapped gifts. Let us tip our hats to those who toured our properties with Santa or engaged in their communities to find opportunities to do good things. We are grateful for all of the support we have received from all areas of our organization to make sure the bottom line was measured in Christmas spirit this holiday season, and not in dollars. Thank you to all of the residents who helped as well, looking out for their neighbors and alerting us when there were opportunities to help. We also had several owners who lent their support and deserve our sincere appreciation. Thank you all!
