AATC Members are committed to serving others.
It was once said: never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world, for that’s the only thing that ever has. The Apartment Association is focused on making a difference in people’s lives.
In addition to our long-standing relationship between two community service partnerships; Union Gospel Mission of Fort Worth and US Marine Corps Toys for Tots, we have recently added a new organization that we are proud to be a partners with—the American Red Cross, a shining example of community service.
Our members get behind each of these wonderful organizations in an effort to make a difference in our communities.
THE AMERICAN RED CROSS
We have partnered with the American Red Cross to help our industry increase awareness on topics such as Fire Safety; Water Safety & Drowning Prevention; Disaster Response; and Education.
UNION GOSPEL MISSION – FORT WORTH
AATC uses the net profit from our annual bowling tournament to help fund most of the work we do for UGM. Over the years our initiatives have included food drives, a wide variety of construction projects, new vehicles, furniture, toys, school backpacks, clothing, and cash. In addition, many of our members take their commitment a step further by serving meals, providing equipment and construction materials, and helping tutor the Mission’s kids.
There are few activities that warm my heart more than serving at the Mission. ~ Lisa Clark, AATCs Past-President.
TOYS FOR TOTS
We also join hands each fall with our friends from AAGD to help raise money and toys to support the US Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign.
I simply love walking into the annual Holiday Reception and seeing thousands of toys piled up to the ceiling waiting to be delivered to kids in the DFW area who would likely wouldn’t see a single gift for Christmas if it wasn’t for the unselfish giving of our multi-housing colleagues. ~ Chris Lee, AATC former Community Service Chair.
