On April 21st The Buccini/Pollin Group management company of The Residences, was recognized for and the recipient of a Jefferson Award for Outstanding Community Service and Outreach by a major company. The other nominees in this category included Capital One, Christiana Care and the Kenny Family Foundation.
“This is truly a humbling honor and one that would not be possible without each of employee. We have always taken pride in our commitment as a company to giving back to our community whether it be through monetary contributions and sponsorship’s of the many organizations we financially support, or through our outreach programs such as our BPG Does More Associate United Way Campaign, the program for adopting families in need during the holidays through Jeans for A Cause, Annual Food Drive or our Mentoring Program and Book Drive for Pulaski Elementary.
These programs and this award drive home the reality that small acts of kindness for each of us when added together multiply to have a profound effect on the communities in which we live, work and serve. We look forward to the future as we continue as a company to serve those in need around us, not for the recognition but simply because it’s the right thing to do.”
