1st Lake Properties Partners with The Metropolitan Center for Women

1st Lake Properties is proud to partner with The Metropolitan Center for Women and Children. During the second half of July, you can help 1st Lake assist victims of domestic violence by donating school supplies for children and care packages for women.

The Metropolitan Center for Women and Children is a non-profit organization in Jefferson Parish that has been offering services for victims of violence since 1986, including helping survivors secure housing, counseling, and alternatives to violence. They strive to help families regain their physical and emotional strength, resulting in empowerment and transformation.

As active participants in the community, 1st lake Properties believes, as The Metropolitan Center for Women and Children does, that “as survivors become stronger, the community is strengthened.”

If you would like to participate, please drop off your donation to your rental office through Friday, August 1. After that, you can still help by donating at Metropolitan Center for Women and Children between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday-Friday. Visit the Metropolitan Center for Women and Children’s website for information and for more ways to help.
