Community Enhancement

NAIOP's Community Enhancement program has always been about supporting our neighbors. Due to the hardships that many people have faced in 2020, we want to give back to our community in a broad and big way. This year, we are hosting a food drive to support organizations throughout the region that successfully distribute food to families in need.

We have partnered with Farmer Frog, Byrd Barr Place, and Mary’s Place as our three drop off locations throughout the region to collect food.

How you can participate:

  • Volunteer to collect food at one of our three locations.
  • Collect food from your network and deliver it to one of our drop-off locations.
  • Give online: All proceeds will be distributed equally between the organizations.
