Lending A Helping Hand
The communities in which we live and operate are a top priority to us. While we do think of Gables properties as a tight-knit community, we also recognize that we are just a small part of the greater community around us. We actively strive to improve the quality of life for our residents and our neighbors.
National Gables Day
Our associates favorite day of the year is commonly known as Gables Day. Each year, every associate company-wide, puts aside their normal daily work activities to volunteer in their region. Since 2000, Gables associates and vendors have contributed over 130,000 volunteer hours and $1,348,000 in goods and services. In 2007, Gables Day was dedicated to assisting several hurricane impacted neighborhoods in New Orleans. Gables was awarded the "2007 Community Service Project of the Year" by Multifamily Executive Magazine for the volunteer efforts in New Orleans contributed by Gables associates.
In keeping with our commitment to sustainable living, all Gables associates and communities participate in celebrating Earth Day. On this day, each community brings residents together to share ideas on improved green practices. In 2011, community events included a beach clean-up day, e-recycling campaigns, as well as clothing drives, just to name a few.
Assisting Local Charities
Community contributions continue year-round by assisting local charities and organizations. Associates and residents continue to support those in need by supporting local programs such as local children's hospitals, charity runs, food banks and youth organizations.
