Western Wealth Capital provides free December rent for 58 families in communities it serves
Phoenix, Arizona – Western Wealth Communities and Western Wealth Capital (WWC) were humbled to again share the annual Rent-Free Christmas program and provided free rent in December for 58 deserving families – one in each community WWC serves – so they may use those funds to instead create a Christmas/Holiday memory with their family.
As part of the program, 14 families in 2021 also received a full Christmas package, including food vouchers, and presents for the entire family. The goals of WWC and Western Wealth Communities are to help lift some financial and emotional burdens for these hard-working individuals and families this holiday season.
In November, WWC chose a family at Presidio North Apartments, 17031 N. 11th Ave., and Sierra Pines, 9401 N. 31st Ave., both in Phoenix.
"No parent should ever have to decide between keeping a roof over a child's head or putting a present under the tree on Christmas Eve, but so many parents do. And especially this year, with all of the uncertainties and challenges this pandemic has brought, I am proud that WWC continues this tradition," said WWC CEO Janet LePage.
“As the holiday season comes into full swing, we’re thinking of the many things that might create stress for families as we continue through these unprecedented times -- such as meals to prepare, traditions to uphold or create, whether or not to attend or host events, and gifts to buy or make. But for many families, the biggest stress of all is how to afford providing a Christmas for their family when budgets are already tight especially if they are dealing with lost income or unexpected medical expenses,” LePage said.
WWC has been able to lift that burden for many deserving families over the past six years. In 2015, it decided as a company to provide one family in need at each of its multifamily communities with a rent-free December. This was a tangible way WWC could have an impact on the families and children that lay their heads to rest each night in WWC’s 58 apartment communities across the nation.
In addition to the 58 families who received free rent, WWC also provided 14 families with a full Christmas memory with decorations and gifts.
“We serve a variety of residents, many in challenged neighborhoods, where purchasing gifts and providing a holiday meal is a financial burden every year. Lifting the spirits of these families and helping to provide a joyful holiday season for many deserving, hard-working families throughout the Phoenix area is our mission with our ‘Rent-Free Christmas’ program,” LePage said.
Each August, WWC also hosts a school supply giveaway. It helps take away the financial burden for families of purchasing $100 or more in backpacks and school supplies. The initiative is called “We’ve Got Your Back,” and provides each school-age child in WWC apartment communities throughout the area with supplies that are suggested or requested by the local school district as well as a brand-new backpack.
“There are numerous ways companies can give back to the communities they serve. We are so proud of the impact that both Rent-Free Christmas and We’ve Got Your Back have on our community members,” LePage said. “We’re proud to have given out more than $300,000 in free rent and school supplies over the past five years and lifted burdens for hundreds of hard-working families.”
