JAMCO Properties, Inc. Summer 2016 Food-A-Thon campaign helps Metro Atlanta families in need

This past Summer, JAMCO Properties, Inc. set out to put a dent in hunger by organizing a Food-A-Thon campaign to collect non-perishable food donations for the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Property staff members at each respective apartment community kicked off the campaign by hosting a resident event. The campaign ran from July 1st, 2016 through August 31st, 2016 to collect donations and to bring awareness about those in need all over Metro Atlanta. JAMCO Properties would like to send a big thank you to everyone who participated in this event – together we can make a difference!

Prizes were generously provided by our vendor partnerships and were awarded to residents who donated the most food items:
