Houston students were pleasantly surprised to find a Thanksgiving Celebration rather than their typical lunch options last Friday, November 20th. ApartmentWIZ president Phil Silberman and employees from the local Houston office provided a traditional Thanksgiving meal to students at Lulu M. Stevens Elementary. ApartmentWIZ volunteers brought a turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, dressing, rolls, sweet tea, and of course a scrumptious pumpkin pie to finish off the meal. During the hour and a half visit the employees also engaged students in a discussion about the history of Thanksgiving, what it means to them today, and what they are thankful for.
ApartmentWIZ employees participate in a Partnership program to mentor students every week at the elementary school. Both students and employees have taken away immeasurable experience from this partnership, and plan to continue it for years to come.
