Project Warmth Day collects 1950 pieces of clothing!

On Saturday, January 20, we partnered with the Project Warmth Society of Alberta and the Calgary Farmers’ Market for Project Warmth Day! Families gathered at the market to take part in family-fun activities and to drop off clothing donations to help those in need.

Together, we collected 1,950 pieces of clothing which have been transported to the Project Warmth Society of Alberta where they will be sorted, cleaned and redistributed to shelters, families and individuals around Calgary.

Thank you to everyone who donated and to our volunteers and partners – Calgary Farmers’ Market, the Project Warmth Society of Alberta, Jelly Modern Doughnuts and Christopher Cool, who made the day a success.

5 Steps to Follow for Finding Ideal Residential Apartments

Instead of feeling exhausted as you hunt for excellent residential apartments, consider the five steps mentioned below. Ultimately, finding the top apartment complexes becomes easier and less stressful.

  1. Establish a Budget – Without creating a budget, you will have no idea what you can afford. Before beginning your search for the best apartment buildings, complete this task first. Preferably, use a computer program to enter all of your debt and income. Remember, the amount of your lease is going to be your most significant expense, so you need to feel comfortable with the amount that you pay each month. As a good rule, never spend more than 30 percent of your gross monthly income on your apartment lease payment.
  2. Location – When searching for a place to live, finding the right location is essential. For instance, if you enjoy going out for dinner, shopping, visiting parks, and so on, then you should focus on a location with walkability. However, if you need to utilize public transportation, then you need to find the top apartment complexes close to a train or bus station.
  3. Apartment Size – You also need to determine the appropriate apartment size. If you’re only looking for a space for yourself, then a one-bedroom unit will suffice. However, if you have children or a spouse or enjoy having family visit, then a two, three, or even four-bedroom apartment is a better choice.
  4. Amenities and Features – Although you probably want the finest of everything, you have to be realistic about what things matter most and fall within your budget. For example, if you want an apartment with both a fireplace and swimming pool but the price is outside of your budget, you might need to compromise on one or the other.
  5. Special Considerations – When looking for the best apartment buildings, there will always be special considerations. If you have animals, then you need a place that is pet-friendly. If you live with a disability, then you want an apartment that can accommodate your needs. Make a list of the things that are essential for you to have in an apartment.

Thank you for supporting our 2017 Project Warmth campaign

Strategic Group would like to extend our thanks to all of our tenants, family, friends, team members and partners, who have contributed to the 2017 Project Warmth campaign.

This year we collected 8,131 pieces of clothing to help keep those in need warm this winter. After the holidays, many people make room for new gifts or donate ones that they no longer need. On January 20 from 10 am to 2 pm, Strategic Group will be at the Calgary Farmers’ Market for Project Warmth Day. We invite you, your colleagues, families and friends to bring any other clothing donations to our table.

Again, on behalf of Strategic Group and the Project Warmth Society of Alberta, many thanks and we hope to see you at the Calgary Farmers’ Market!
