Harvest Hope Food Drive
Estates & Companies and three of our Columbia communities, Arcadia’s Edge, 42 Magnolia, & 700 Woodrow, teamed up for a food drive in July to benefit Harvest Hope Food Bank. Harvest Hope provides for those in need by gathering and sharing food with dignity, compassion, and education. Collection containers were shared at each community including our corporate office, where residents, team members, and visitors were encouraged to donate. An enormous response was received & many thanks are due to everyone who participated.
700 Woodrow, A Community Donation
An Estates & Companies affiliate recently performed an urban restoration of the former Whitney Hotel in Columbia, SC converting it to upscale apartments known as 700 Woodrow. Operating as a 75-suite hotel one could only imagine the abundance of furniture, appliances, housewares, and other specialty items that adorned it. A great number of these items, totaling a donation of over $250,000, were gifted to three local non-profit organizations to be re-purposed by these organizations to support their missions. These non-profits included Columbia International University, The Cooperative Ministries, and The Oliver Gospel Mission.
Tools for Schools
Churchill Commons Apartments of Aiken, SC and 1420 Magnolia Apartments of Charlotte, NC, each Estates’ Communities, voluntarily chose to be a part of their local Tools for Schools program. The Tools for Schools program provides school supplies to less fortunate children necessary for children to succeed in school.
