DALLAS, Oct. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pinnacle, one of the nation’s leading multifamily management firms, held its second annual Corporate Team Community Service Week in October to assist nationally recognized charitable institutions across the country. Team members from each of the company’s 16 corporate and regional offices volunteered at least one day during a dedicated work week at local food banks, alliances or other ministries within their own communities.
Pinnacle maintains an active volunteer program throughout the year, encouraging team members to support various non-profits at times that are convenient to their professional and personal schedules. Corporate Team Community Service Week put a synchronized focus on these efforts by allowing employees to assist an organization of their choosing for an entire work day.
“Current events, like the recent hurricanes, depleted so many food pantries that a majority of our offices chose to assist those types of organizations during our 2017 program,” said Chief Operating Officer Larry Goodman. “Some offices were just excited about lending a hand for charities they currently support.”
In Atlanta, Pinnacle scheduled time to assist the Atlanta Community Food Bank, where our volunteers packaged 18,900 pounds of food to provide 15,750 meals for 29 surrounding counties. At least 30,400 meals were packed by the company’s San Antonio team at the Central Texas Food Bank.
Fifty-six volunteers in Dallas coordinated full shifts over a three-day period at the Children’s Hunger Fund in Dallas to prepare thousands of packages of beans, dried fruit and toys for the upcoming holidays. In Minneapolis, Pinnacle partnered with other companies at Feed My Starving Children to wrap enough food to feed 66 children for an entire year.
“We are still tallying our efforts from the week, but our teams went out in full force to give back in any way we could,” explained Goodman. “We were certainly able to make a big difference in many communities.”
Pinnacle’s Corporate Team Community Service Week was initiated in 2016 to enable staff to share their time and talents from our regional offices in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Minnesota, Nevada, Oregon, Texas and Washington.
