As the holiday season approaches, it is our natural tendency to want to help those in need. Often though, this desire gets pushed to the back burner with the stress of our own gift shopping, family gatherings, and the general stress of the holiday season. Neighborhood Management, LLC and the Board of Directors for your community would like to help you help others by hosting a food & toy drive in your neighborhood to benefit Toys for Tots and the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama. Over the past five years, we’ve collected 24,891 pounds of food and countless toy donations! We’d like to make this year bigger and better, so every donation counts!
We know the holiday season is full of joyful hustle and bustle, so in order to make donating as convenient as possible for all our neighbors, a Neighborhood Management Representative will come to the community on Thursday, December 6th to collect all donations. On this day, simply place your donation by your mailbox no later than 8:30 am. We will drive through the community to collect them that morning. Please do not place donations inside your mailbox. Also, if rain is expected on the collection day, please place your donation inside a plastic bag.
