At the beginning of April one of our residents was struggling through a horrible personal situation. Woodridge staff has been very aware of the resident’s situation, acting as a friend, counselor, etc. I’m sure every property manager, assistant manager, and leasing consultant could raise their hand and empathize with the multiple roles management staff members play daily. However, only a few can say they provided food for the disenfranchised. After the resident’s apartment was unexpectedly cleaned out, she was left with nothing— including no food. Upon hearing this, Nicole went to the grocery store with her boyfriend Josh, and together they—on their own time and with their own money—filled up the refrigerator for this woman who had nothing. Most people are willing to take Charitable Time Off to participate in organized events such as the recent trip to Feed My Starving Children, and this is a noble virtue. But, only a few spend their own time and money to accomplish a similar task. Nicole’s giving heart and her actions are an example to me of how to take care of those who are in need.
