A Season of Giving from Preferred Corporate Housing

Preferred Corporate Housing donates $21.5K to national and local charities in partnership with clients participating in its ‘Preferred Charity Helpers’ program.

Third quarter participation in Preferred Corporate Housing’s ‘Preferred Charity Helpers’ program exceeded all previous quarters, and resulted in a donation total of $21,421.70. This industry-leading initiative began as a way to get Preferred’s national clients involved in community and philanthropic endeavors in partnership with PCH. The program’s success has allowed PCH to donate a total of $52.5K in 2013 to national and local charities.

Through the “Preferred Charity Helpers’ Program, PCH donates a portion of each new furnished apartment lease to their clients’ chosen charity organization. “Our clients have really jumped on board with this opportunity to support their favorite causes,” said Michelle Velasquez, Director of Client Services for PCH. “Some clients have elected to donate to national charities like Habitat for Humanity, St. Judes Childrens Cancer Research Hospital, and the ASPCA, while others have allowed us to make donations on their behalf to their local charity organizations like food pantries and shelters. We give our clients the option to select whichever charity they prefer to support through this program,” said Velasquez.

“We have been pleasantly surprised at the initial responses we’ve received from our clients who are invited to participate in this program,” said Samantha Elliott, President of PCH. “I really the opportunity to give back on our clients’ behalf, especially to those charity organizations that mean so much to them.”

As we wind down 2013, we will make our final Preferred Charity Helpers donation. Though final tallies have not been made, we anticipate the fourth quarter donation to bring our 2013 total to more than $65,000 with the support and partnership of our national clients.
