'There is no home for hunger'


Nashville, TN: Crye-Leike Property Management announces that its Middle Tennessee offices will be participating in Second Harvest's Hunger Action Month. From September 1st to September 27th, locals can drop off non-perishable food items at any of the 21 Crye-Leike Real Estate or Property Management offices within the Middle Tennessee region.

Second Harvest hosts this annual campaign to ensure that local communities take action on the issue of hunger. Hunger knows no boundary, it has no social class and it lives in your community. Statistics say that nationally, 15.7 percent of all households experience food hardship. That number rises considerably for households with children to 17.5 percent nationally. In the South alone, the number is climbing to an alarming 17.5 to 19.3 percent depending on the state.

This year, Crye-Leike Property Management in Middle Tennessee wants to uphold Crye-Leike's Core Value of being a "Good Neighbor" by encouraging its agents, employees and residents of the Nashville communities to donate to this great cause. Second Harvest works hard to ensure that the food raised within the local communities will be used to feed the people facing hunger in those communities.

Crye-Leike Property Management Executive Vice President Linda Ayers is proud of her office's participation in this event and looks forward to making a positive impact in this region.

"The Property Management Division of Crye-Leike takes our company's Core Values very seriously," said Ayers. "We strive to make a positive difference in our communities as much as we can. The hunger crisis in this country is real and getting worse each year. I have been amazed at the wonderful work Feeding America has been doing across the country, and I instantly knew this was something we would want to get involved in. Crye-Leike Property Management is very excited to partner with Second Harvest to raise awareness and take a stand against hunger in Middle Tennessee."

Although all non-perishable food items are welcomed, the following items are most needed by donation:

  • Peanut butter

  • Canned meats (Chicken/Tuna)

  • Canned fruits and vegetables

  • Soups and stews

  • Pastas

  • Cereals
