Something that is really important to Investment Real Estate is being involved in our communities and giving back, whether we do this on a corporate level or with our managed facilities. One of our favorite charities to work with is Volunteers is America. In fact owner and self storage broker John Gilliland is proud to be on their Board of Directors. Here is a little bit about them.
Volunteers of America is a national, nonprofit, faith-based organization dedicated to helping those most in need rebuild their lives and reach their full potential. Volunteers of America’s nationwide organization of over 16,000 professionals and 70,000 volunteers has established itself as one of the nation’s largest providers of a broad and diverse range of quality human services. We serve more than 2 million people in over 400 communities each year through hundreds of Volunteers of America human service programs.
Since 1896 Volunteers of America has supported and empowered America’s most vulnerable groups, including at-risk youth, the frail elderly, low-income families, homeless individuals and families, women and children escaping domestic violence, and those seeking affordable housing solutions.
In fact, today, Volunteers of America is the largest nonprofit developer and provider of affordable housing in the nation. Their work “touches the mind, body, heart – and ultimately the spirit – of those they serve, integrating their deep compassion with highly effective programs and services.”
We think they are pretty amazing. Alongside our facilities we will be collecting shoes and clothing for them from now until the end of June. Our last Winter Collection Drive with them brought in over 2,000 items.
Give them a call at 717.236.1440 or check out their website to find out how you can get involved.
