Developer Partners with Nonprofit to Provide Bountiful Holiday Dinners
BARNEGAT, N.J. (Nov. 20, 2023) — Giving back is the essence of the holiday season, and Walters got into the spirit with its annual Thanksgiving basket collection and donation. The award-winning developer partnered with local nonprofit Family Promise of Southern Ocean County to put together over 100 baskets with gift cards and non-perishable food items for residents within the firm’s affordable housing apartment portfolio.
“Thanksgiving is all about giving back, and we are thrilled that this annual tradition has continued to grow and that we are able to support our residents,” said Jennifer Pampalone, social services coordinator for Walters. “We received a tremendous number of donations and lots assistance from our staff, and with the support of Family Promise have been able to provide bountiful holiday dinners for dozens of households.”
Family Promise is a nonprofit which works with faith and community-based organizations in Southern Ocean County to provide temporary shelter, meals, and supportive services to struggling families with children under the age of 18.
Walters has remained committed to giving back to its communities through philanthropic efforts, such as providing holiday gifts for lower-income families, offering year-round food/necessity pantries at its properties, and supporting wellness and education initiatives. Additionally, each year, Walters presents scholarships to graduating seniors in the Barnegat Bay area who plan to attend college.
