Fannie Hillman + Associates and several of its clients and closest friends raised over $1,600 in cash donations and school supplies to help 350 children residing in The Meadows apartment complex owned and operated by the Winter Park Housing Authority. School supplies included everything from backpacks, notebooks, pens and pencils to calculators, pocket folders, notebook paper, scissors, rulers and highlighters.
“We are extraordinarily grateful to Fannie Hillman + Associates for their commitment to the 350 youth who call The Meadows home. Our September school supplies have been exhausted and Fannie Hillman graciously recognized the need to assist the youth. The impact of this wonderful gesture can never be truly measured,” said Patsy Rice, executive director of the Winter Park Housing Authority which owns six rental properties in Winter Park, including The Meadows, and operates under the Central Florida Leased Housing Corp.
“It’s our way of annually giving back to a very worthy cause in the community and one this year that will help school-age children have the supplies they need as they prepare for year-end projects, the FCAT and final exams,” said Scott Hillman, president of the celebrated 33-year-old Winter Park residential real estate agency.
The Winter Park Housing Authority is just one of many community organizations that Fannie Hillman + Associates has helped over the years. Others include the Winter Park High School.
