Many of the 1st Lake Properties apartments in the New Orleans area have been busy over the past few months with philanthropic efforts and giving back to the communities they love. Residents have done their part to be good samaritans, benefiting others as well as themselves.
Managers and residents of the Citrus Creek apartments for rent in River Ridge held a “Warm a Life” clothing drive during the entire month of January. “Our expectations were overwhelmingly exceeded by the amount of donations received,” said Property Manager Christine Ward. Citrus Creek East collected large boxes of items, mostly gently worn coats, shoes, shirts, socks, pants, pillows and blankets. All of the donations will be delivered to the New Orleans Mission. All residents that donated were entered into a drawing to win a free oil change from Auto Empire. Citrus Creek West also contributed to the donations.
In December and January, residents at the Kenner apartments of Lakes of Chateau Estates North and South donated new and gently used coats for the Coats for Kids Foundation.
Both Citrus Creek and the Sugar Mill West apartments in Kenner participated in blood drives in December with substantial turnouts, providing many donations to the Blood Center. Sugar Mill West is holding their next blood drive on February 23 and residents who donate will be rewarded with a free ticket to the Home & Garden show on the same weekend.
