More than 240 children who live at Mercy Housing California‘s Bay Area properties will receive Christmas presents this year thanks to Equity Residential. Gifts include MP3 players, toys, bedding and a desk and chair for a child to do homework.
Equity Residential collected toys for the children as part of the company’s partnership with Mercy Housing. Earlier this year, Equity Residential, a publicly traded owner, developer and manager of multifamily housing, agreed to a five-year partnership that includes a $100,000-a-year donation to support Mercy Housing’s mission and a volunteer commitment from Equity Residential staff.
In October, Equity Residential staff members joined KaBOOM!, The Home Depot and other volunteers to help build a playground in a day at Holly Park Apartments in Denver. On Nov. 21, Equity Residential staff painted community rooms and a computer lab at two other Mercy Housing California properties — Columbia Park and Heritage Homes.
Thank you Equity Residential for your ongoing commitment to Mercy Housing!
