As we enter the holiday season, property managers have myriad opportunities to connect with residents and go the extra mile to show their gratitude and appreciation for them. Christmas is arguably the easiest holiday upon which to capitalize, and Christmas parties, Secret Santas, Yankee Swaps, and communal tree decorating are just a few ways to keep everyone engaged and happy.
One holiday that tends to get skipped right over is Thanksgiving, but when it comes to building community, it can be the best option of all.
Unfortunately, not everyone has somewhere to go on Thanksgiving. There can be several reasons for this, but it’s still tough to think of everyone else sitting down to a meal and someone else being left out or left behind. As a property manager, you can lift some spirits by hosting a Thanksgiving meal in a communal area. It can be on Thanksgiving or it can be the week before. It can be a potluck or catered, depending on the budget. However it’s presented, it can mean a lot to residents who weren’t expecting to celebrate at all.
From all of us at Pilera to all the property managers, community managers, residents, clients, and friends out there, we wish you all a happy, fun, and safe Thanksgiving!
