Monroe Place Apartments Gives Back to the Children!

Gift Giving at Monroe Place!

The response to the Salvation Army Angel Tree program has been simply amazing! The old holiday saying that “it is better to give, than to receive” prevails at the sight of all the wish-gifts and needs that will go to all the children this year.

We are so proud of our Monroe Place residents! According to D. Simms, “I have been in the business over 12 years and I have never seen a response like I have seen from our residents, vendors and employees.”

Some of the larger donations this year include: roller skates, Barbie dolls, school uniforms, bedding and toys. It’s certainly beginning to look and feel like the holiday season around here.

If you have not had a chance to sponsor an Angel, and would like to do so, please stop by and grab a little Angel’s wish list from the tree. The pickup and collection date has been extended to December 2nd, so hurry on down to the leasing lobby and make a child’s wish come true.

You may continue to give all year-long, but we thank all of you for all that you have given of yourselves this holiday season!

Happy Holidays!

Perhaps you’ve just moved into a new home or apartment, and don’t know where to start when it comes to arranging furniture. The CORT furniture blog is here to help, even if you haven’t actually moved, and you’re just getting bored with the interior layout and design of your space. Especially if you haven’t rearranged things in a while, it can be really tough to visualize your furniture in any alternative setup. On top of that, furniture arrangement comes with its own bevy of challenges. Sometimes a small or oddly shaped room will have major limitations in terms of how all of the elements fit within it.
