Since July of this year, several Grady Management communities alongside the corporate office have been gathering canned and boxed food items for The Apartment and Office Building Association of Metropolitan Washington's, known as AOBA, summer food drive. The food collected during the drive will be donated to The Capital Area Food Bank, an organization that serves more than 500 thousand individuals every year.
Regular food drive participants, the Grady team aimed, this year, to focus on collecting the specific food items listed on the Capital Area Food Bank's Most Wanted List. These food products are often overlooked in traditional food drives: 100 percent juices with no added sugar, vegetables canned with no added sodium, etc.
Some Grady communities gathered food drive resources in typical methods: by setting up a collection box in the community leasing office or Clubhouse. Adams Crossing in Waldrof, Maryland (right) kept a growing collection in proud display of everyone who entered their office.
Others found creative and innovative ways to collect for the summer food drive. For example, Glenmont Forest (left) in Silver Spring, Maryland did a "swap" for food- younger residents who brought in canned or boxed food products could select a piece of candy from a basket in the leasing office.
Grady Management thanks all residents and team members who chose to participate in the summer food drive!
