Our multifamily business that we will be highlighting today for day 3 of those giving back to their community is the Atlanta Apartment Association.

The Atlanta Apartment Association (AAA) was founded in 1975 and is currently one of the largest apartment associations in the country, as well as an affiliate of the National Apartment Association.  The Atlanta Apartment Association “represents over 1,600 member companies consisting of 400 companies managing 330,000+ apartment homes, and over 1,200 businesses that provide products and services to the industry.”  How the AAA gives back to the metro area is done is a very unique way that gets the community actively involved as well.  For over 25 years the AAA has been hosting an annual food drive, the Can Can Ball, that has become the largest food drive in the country!  The Can Can Ball benefits the Atlanta Community Food Bank and in 2010 alone, the event raised $157,800, allowing the Food Bank to provide 252,480 pounds of food to those in need.  This is an incredible cause and hopefully will be one that AAA continues for years and years to come.

Great work AAA!
