People on the Move – CHARITIES BENEFIT AS THE RETIREMENT COMMUNITY “UNWRAPS” NEW RESIDENT REFERRAL PROGRAM
Gainesville, VA – [December 22, 2008]. The Marque at Heritage Hunt, an Active Adult, rental apartment community in Gainesville, Virginia, is unwrapping a new Program to benefit three non-profit organizations: Transitional Housing BARN, Inc., the Salvation Army and Children’s Hospital Foundation.
“In the spirit of the season, this is a wonderful way for our residents to give to an organization of their choice and know that they are doing something to help others in need,” said Linda Kurtz, Director of Marketing for The Marque at Heritage Hunt. “The residents choose three organizations and we are thrilled to be able to facilitate the program.”
The Resident Referral program is a “win-win-win” for renters, The Marque and local charities, just in time for the holidays. Residents at The Marque are encouraged to refer their community to friends and family. If one of those friends signs a one-year lease with The Marque, the resident will receive $1,000 of which they can donate a minimum of $200 to one of the three non-profit organizations participating in the program.
