Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2020 | Cushman & Wakefield
DELIVERING THE ESSENTIALS
Our Multifamily Team Making an Impact Food insecurity and homelessness grew at an alarming rate in the U.S. during the pandemic, and Cushman & Wakefield’s multifamily team was eager to help on both fronts. Working in tandem with Children’s Hunger Fund , Move For Hunger and residents in the buildings we manage, we organized food drives and virtual raffles throughout October resulting in the delivery of more than 84,500 meals for people in need. Additionally, we continue to partner with Resident Relief Foundation , a unique organization that provides rental assistance as a “rent bridge” to help keep residents in their apartments during a temporary financial crisis. We’ve also established best practices and simplified the application process for homeless families transitioning to permanent housing, and we provide onsite space at the properties we manage for case managers to assist families going through this process. Throughout 2020, our multifamily team’s fundraising efforts and donations enabled us to distribute more than $130,500 to various non- profits, meeting the needs of those most impacted by the pandemic.
