1st Lake Properties, Inc. partners annually in charitable organizations in order to raise money and awareness about such organizations as well as offer a avenue to contribute. Organizations include United Way, Susan Komen, American Heart Association, Angel’s Place and many others.
This year, 1st Lake Properties will work in partnership with the Apartment Association of Greater New Orleans to sponsor a Holiday Toy Collection for the Angels’ Place children and their families throughout the month of December.
Angels’ Place is a nonprofit organization providing respite and hospice care for children and their families. Founded over 15 years ago by Anita Gilford, a registered nurse, Angel’s Place serves over 110 families throughout the Greater New Orleans area.
Aside from the Holiday Toy Drive, 1st Lake Properties sponsors an annual collection to provide school supplies for Angels’ Place families; helping parents better prepare students for the high cost of preparing for the new school.
1st Lake Properties will be collecting toys on Friday December 3, 2010 in the front of Palmetto Creek Apartments at 5101 Citrus Boulevard in Elmwood across from the Joe Yenni Office building. You can drop off a toy or donation. For more information contact Palmetto Creek at 504-733-7256.
