CORT is proud to work with multifamily property management companies like WinnCompanies and Berkshire Communities to make the world a better place. As an ongoing commitment to give back to the local communities we serve, employees from the CORT multifamily housing space participated in community service days hosted by these partner organizations.
Most recently, Pete Regules, director of multifamily products and services at CORT, volunteered at WinnersCircle, an annual event for WinnCompanies’ employees and partners, leading the charge to collect canned goods that were donated to the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center. The event was held in March in Newport, Rhode Island, and was a huge success.
WinnCompanies believes in making positive contributions to the communities in which they do business. Outside of the company’s daily efforts of managing and developing multifamily housing units, its team of 3,000 employees engages in various charitable, volunteer and service-related initiatives throughout the year.
This year, CORT team members volunteered at the Berkshire Communities Spirit of Giving event, where they were tasked with building 16 bicycles from scratch in an effort to both bond as a team and give back to their local community. Participants assembled custom-made bikes that were presented to the Children’s Home Society, a foster care organization for abandoned, abused and neglected children in Florida
“The children were thrilled to receive their brand-new wheels,” says Tamela Coval, executive consultant, MultiFamily Technology, CORT. “It was truly magical to see everyone come together for such a great cause.”
In addition to their roles with CORT, Regules and Coval each serve the charitable giving task force for the National Apartment Association.
“It’s tremendously important for individuals and companies in our industry to give back to those in need,” said Regules. “We are passionate about serving individuals and families, as it remains at the core of everything we do.”
From furnishing affordable housing units, to assisting local families with disaster relief efforts and providing meals to the homeless during the holidays, CORT is proud to serve local communities across the United States.
