AVE Donates 2,500 Pounds of Food to Move for Hunger

12 November 2019 Giving Back

All 13 AVE flexible-living communities in New Jersey, the Greater Philadelphia area, and the East Bay area of San Francisco hosted food drives to benefit Move For Hunger. Over 500 pounds of food were collected from AVE Lansdale alone, which equals 450 meals.

With the generosity of our team members, residents, and partners, AVE donated a total of 2,480 pounds of food to provide over 2,000 meals for those in need.

“AVE has embraced our model and implemented a sustainable way to fight hunger and reduce food waste at each of their properties,” says Adam Lowy, Executive Director/Founder of Move For Hunger. “They have proven that the program is capable of making a huge impact, and that has helped us expand our reach in the multi-family industry. Move For Hunger would not be the organization it is today without their support.”

“We look forward to our September food drive every year, and any opportunity we have to support our partner Move For Hunger in their quest to reduce hunger in our communities,” says Lea Anne Welsh, president of AVE and COO of Korman Communities. “We raised 1,000 more pounds of food this year, which is amazing! I am always so proud of our passionate team members and generous residents.”
