At Gaines Investment Trust we are not only invested in our fellow team members and the residents that we serve on a daily basis, but we are also invested in the well being of those who are navigating hardships around the globe.
Now more than ever, we do not take for granted our access to safe and pleasant places to call home. And we have deep empathy for those who are aren't as fortunate. It's this empathy that has led Gaines Investment Trust to formalize a commitment to charitable giving.
We launched a new initiative in November of 2021 in which we commit to donating at least $10,000 annually to charitable causes that benefit our local communities. Every quarter, our team members can now nominate a "Quarterly Cause." We select a team member from each region and we donate $500 to the charitable cause of their choice on their behalf.
But this is just a small part of our efforts to make a positive impact. Last month, we donated an additional $25,000 to support the people of Ukraine.
At Gaines Investment Trust, we feel privileged to be able to offer over 10,000 residents with safe and pleasant places to call home. Being in this business gives us the financial ability to help even more people. We're grateful for the opportunity to make a positive impact in the world for years to come. Thank you for your support.
