Hales 8th Annual Food Drive
Hales Property Management is pleased to announce our 8th Annual Food Drive to benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD).
Unfortunately, due to COVID19, this year’s charitable effort will not include collecting physical food items from building residents. However, we will still be accepting monetary donations from anyone willing and able to help out!
The GCFD makes it easy to donate online, simply click the Donate Now button below. Every $1 donated equals 3 meals with 100% of proceeds going towards those in need. The website even provides the option to select specific food items to donate (fruits, vegetables, etc.).
Last year we were incredibly proud to provide over 21,000 meals to the GCFD. We understand times are tougher this year and we may not be able to achieve the same threshold. However, as you can see, even $1 goes a long way and we greatly appreciate any and all donations given. We look forward to helping as many people as possible this holiday season. Donate Now!
As we monitor the CDC guidelines related to Covid-19, we will continue to notify all of our clients with updates as soon as we can. Keep an eye on your email, the web-portal and our blog for additional information as it comes in. As always, our employee and client safety is our number priority and we will continue to do our best to ensure we are adhering to all recommended guidelines.

Q & A
Q: I can feel a draft around my door or window. Is this something I can ask the building manager to fix?
A: This will depend on the origin of the issue. In most cases, further insulation will be the job of the condo owner, but if the problem stems from an issue with the exterior of the building, then the building manager may be able to help.
