Preferred Corporate Housing Launches Partnership with Move for Hunger

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-06-11 at 3.46.08 PMPreferred Corporate Housing launched its very successful ‘Preferred Charity Helpers’ Program in the Fall of 2013. Through this client-driven initiative, PCH has committed to supporting various local, regional, national and global charities as selected by each of its National Account Program Members. In the past two years, PCH has donated over $200K to organizations like Habitat for Humanity, The Wounded Warrior Project, ASPCA and several other local and regional charities.

PCH is proud to announce its newest ‘Preferred Charity Helpers’ alliance with Move for Hunger, a hunger relief organization that works within the relocation industry to collect non-perishable food items left behind when someone moves, to deliver to food banks all across North America.

Preferred Corporate Housing will be supporting Move for Hunger in several ways, including quarterly monetary donations via the ‘Preferred Charity Helpers’ Program, and by collecting food items left behind when guests move out of one of its nationwide furnished apartments. Once the food items have been collected, Move for Hunger will use its network of partner van line companies to deliver the food to local food bank operations.

“We really fell in love with the concept of Move for Hunger,” said Samantha Elliott, PCH President. “Everyone has non-perishable food items that are a hassle to pack and transport, and most of it winds up in the trash. But by partnering with Move for Hunger and giving our guests a way to donate those items, we know we can help make a big difference to fight hunger within our country.”

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.
