New Orleans Area Apartments Give Back

In the spirit of giving, 1st Lake’s Citrus Creek apartment community has hosted a number of thoughtful and charitable events over the past few months at their apartment community in River Ridge.

Back around Halloween, Citrus Creek gave all residents’ pets a special treat for the holiday. This was carried out in conjunction with Hickory Knoll Veterinary Hospital which donated small bags of treats for cats and dogs. The staff at Citrus Creek then distributed the treat bags along with a toy and a special note made out to the pet. The idea was that each pet would get a toy to do tricks with and a treat to enjoy. All the pet owners at Citrus Creek were extremely appreciative, and touched that their pets were thought of in such a special way.

With the holiday season upon us, Citrus Creek is hosting a food drive for Second Harvest Food Bank and a pet food drive for the Animal Rescue of New Orleans.  All residents that donated food to either drive by November 30, 2012 were then entered to win a $50 gift card to Fox & Hound English Pub-Grille in River Ridge.

With so much goodwill going around, the residents at the Citrus Creek River Ridge apartments are sure to be in the holiday spirit!
