We are proud to announce that Cardinal Capital and its affiliate Astar Capital Management, Inc. are a 2016 REME Award Finalist for the Corporate and Social Responsibility category.
The Corporate and Social Responsibility REME Award recognizes real estate management excellence for exemplary corporate responsibility and contributions to the community that enhance the reputation of the real estate management industry.
Cardinal Capital and its affiliate earned the finalist position through the nomination for our "Growing Community Through Gardening" program, a health and wellness initiative that provides healthy food options, cultivates social interaction among residents, facilitates physical activity and improves psychological well-being . With over 8,500 units of residential housing, almost 12,000 individual residents have the opportunity to be affected by this program.
In 2015, our community gardening program was enhanced through the addition of volunteer hours provided by our corporate partners. Cash donations from corporate vendors and contractors provide the capital to purchase the supplies necessary to build, fill, plant and cultivate the garden beds.
We look forward to being recognized at the Inaugural Gala Dinner and REME Awards event in October 2016 and the announcement of the winner in this category. Read more about the REME Award Finalists.
