Move for Hunger Announces Communities of the Year

Posted By: Andrea Brady Industry ,

We are thrilled to honor the 2020 & 2019 Communities of the Year!

2020 Winner: Throughout their three years of participation with the Move For Hunger Program, Renew Wheaton Center, a Trinity Property Consultants property, has collected over 1,800 meals and successfully supported the Lakeview Pantry at their Sheridan location through their efforts fighting hunger with Move For Hunger. Residents at Renew Wheaton Center team up with the local community with fun engagement events that give back to the community.  By participating in Season of Giving, Spring into Action, & generous donations from residents, the community has been able to create an awareness campaign around food insecurity in their county. 

Amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic, the team at Renew Wheaton Center has been a dedicated group of passionate individuals advocating to fight hunger. About 1 in 9 people in Illinois are facing food insecurity including half a million people in DuPage county (home of Renew at Wheaton Center). Nick Miller, Property Manager at Renew Wheaton Center says, "Giving back is a great way to get to know your community, while also helping families who are in need. Many people don't realize that even 1 pound can have a positive impact. When we report back to our residents on how many meals they have provided, they donate more food! Even if they are not moving!"

2019 Winner: Throughout their three years of participation with the Move For Hunger Program, Williams Reserve, a RMK Management property, collected over 1,000 meals and has successfully supported the Lakeview Pantry at their Sheridan Location through their efforts fighting hunger. Residents at Williams Reserve team together with fun engagement events which give back to the community of Palatine, IL.  By participating in Season of Giving, Spring into Action, Thanksgiving food drives, Spread the Love Events & generous donations from residents, the community has been able to create an awareness campaign around food insecurity in their state. 

As advocates of the Move For Hunger program, the team at Williams Reserve has been a dedicated group of passionate individuals fighting hunger. About 1 in 9 people in Illinois are facing food insecurity including half a million people in Cook County (home of Williams Reserve). Bridget Foley, Director of Multifamily Programs with Move For Hunger, says, “Williams Reserve has been with us since the beginning of our program and has done amazing things! This is a very close nit community, neighbors are always helping each other when in need. Congratulations to the Williams Reserve team!”
