Food Drive for Poverello
Metropolitan Apartments is excited to host a food drive for our friends at Poverello. The Poverello Center, Inc., was originally founded in 1987 by Father Bill Collins (1931-2017) to feed people who, at the time, were dying in large numbers from complications from AIDS. Because Father Collins recognized a need and did something about it.
Today, Poverello continues providing food as medicine to people with HIV who are living with the virus as a chronic condition, but also provides food as medicine to people with Cardiac and Kidney problems as well as those with glycemic disorders, Cancer or other Critical/Chronic illnesses. Each year nearly 3000 families needing support come to the Poverello Center, Inc. to select medically appropriate grocery items from our specialized menus.
For the month of June, Metropolitan will host a food drive for Poverello. Make your donations in our office thru July 3.
Most useful items needed are:
• Canned meats (tuna, chicken)
• Rice and beans (dry or canned)
• Canned fruits and vegetables
• Canned soups and meals
• Pasta meals (ravioli, mac n’ cheese)
• Peanut butter and jelly
We are excited to partner with Poverello because we feel this is a worthy cause. The generosity of our residents is inspiring.
Furthermore, volunteer opportunities and event fund raisers are available for those who would like to do more.
Act fast because we do not have much availability in our community. Currently we have one Chardonnay, a 797 sq. ft. one bedroom with one bath apartment. We have three styles left in our two bedroom floor plans, Riesling, Merlot and the Orvieto. All our apartments include open kitchens with island bar seating, granite counters and vanities, designer cabinets and stainless steel appliances.
Community amenities include private garages, resort-style pool, fitness studio, dog park and herb garden to name a few. Metropolitan is also a smoke-free silver certified community. Call 1-844-779-6066 to speak with a leasing professional.
