Flaherty & Collins Properties held an internal Chili Cook-Off event on Friday, November 21 to serve as the basis of a donation to the Mozel Sanders Foundation in support of the foundation’s annual Thanksgiving Day campaign.
The event raised over $1,000, which Flaherty & Collins Properties combined with a pledged donation of $2,000 to assist with the Mozel Sanders Foundation Thanksgiving Day campaign, which will serve 41,500 meals next week. In 2013, over 2,000 volunteers served over 40,000 meals from 45 locations for the annual Mozel Sanders Foundation Thanksgiving Day campaign. In 2013, the average cost per meal was $4.50.
In addition, Flaherty & Collins Properties, which has donated to various areas of the Mozel Sanders Foundation for many years, has been collecting non-perishable goods, personal hygiene products and household cleaning supplies over the past six weeks to help support Mozel Sanders’ efforts in this area during the holiday season and beyond. The Foundation distributes more than 30,000 pounds of these items each month of the year. One of Flaherty & Collins Properties local apartment communities, Westlake, donated over 1,000 items alone, including 592 toothbrushes and 75 rolls of toilet paper.
