As the holiday season approaches, it is our natural tendency to want to help those in need. Often though, this desire gets pushed to the back burner with the stress of our own gift shopping, family gatherings, and the general stress of the holiday season. Neighborhood Management and the Board of Directors for your community would like to help you help others by hosting a food/toy drive in your neighborhood to benefit Toys for Tots and the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama.
In order to make donating as convenient as possible for all our neighbors,

you are welcome to drop your donations off at the gate house on your way into the community anytime between now and December 11, 2015. In order to keep traffic flowing regularly through the gate, we are asking that all donations are made by entering the visitor’s lane. The gate attendant on duty will gladly accept your donations.
