Signature Management Corporation’s staff and employees from all eight of our properties across Hampton Roads, including York County and Williamsburg, VA, kicked off the 2019 holiday season by participating in their 3rd Annual Food Drive to support the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia from November 1st to November 15th, 2018.
On November 15th, Signature Management teams from the Southside and Peninsula were proud to deliver all 3,691 pounds of food to the hardworking team at the Foodbank and learn about the work they do to help feed individuals and families across Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore.
After weeks of collecting non-perishable, nutritious foods in designated collection boxes located at each property, Signature Management’s team gathered on November 15th and went door to door collecting paper grocery bags filled with donations left by community residents. Altogether, our teams collectively delivered a grand total of 3,691 pounds of food, or 3,076 meals to the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia’s headquarters on Tidewater Drive in Norfolk, VA.
Signature Management Regional Director of Operations, Matt Miller, said of the experience, “Every Friday is distribution day for the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia and pulling in you could see the line backed out of the building. Our residents, employees, commercial tenants and vendors came together over the last few weeks to help put food on the table for thousands of families. As we unloaded six vehicles full of food, two of our property managers overheard a Food Bank employee say, ‘Now, its starting to feel like the holidays.’ As you all know, we have five company core values: Honesty, Excellence, Accountability, Responsibility and Teamwork. Today, through teamwork, we put our responsibility core value to work by helping to feed our local community. It truly was an impactful day.”
Signature Management Corporation would like to extend special thanks to CoStar and HD Supply for supporting this effort. We are proud to partner with vendors who understand the value in giving back.
