-- Planned Property Management
(PPM) and the Lakeview Pantry understand that the demand for food donations increases during the summer when children are out of school, which is why they are joining forces to help feed those in need.
This July and August, PPM will make a cash donation to the Lakeview Pantry for each new lease signed. The Lakeview Pantry has provided food to Chicago's hungry for more than 40 years, and every $1 donated to the pantry can supply about 10 pounds of food.
"The need for food is constant, but it is especially great in the summer, when many children who relied on school lunch programs miss meals," said Dan McDonough of PPM, which owns and manages a number of residential apartment buildings in the Lakeview, Lincoln Park and Gold Coast neighborhoods. "One of our core values is to give back to our community, and we're proud to support the Lakeview Pantry, which offers year-round help to those who need it most."
Omerovic added that existing PPM residents and employees were also encouraged to donate by visiting www.lakeviewpantry.org
