Sterling Properties lent a hand to bring joy to those less fortunate this Thanksgiving when the developer hosted an annual food drive at The Crossings at Ewing rental community to benefit the Mercer Street Friends Food Bank.
Leasing Manager Vickie Walters led the effort to collect non-perishable food items, canned goods and baby supplies at the Mercer County neighborhood. Thanks to the generous residents at The Crossings at Ewing, 2017 was the most successful year to date for the charitable initiative with 704 pounds of items donated to assist the community organization in time for the Holiday.
“We believe it’s important for every member of the community to help support the neighborhood it serves,” says Ms. Walters. “The Mercer Street Friends Food Bank plays a key role in delivering food and other necessary items to the needy in this area and we wanted to support their tireless work. We’re pleased so many of our residents agreed and dropped off food at our leasing center to assist our efforts to do something very kind for Thanksgiving.”
