Deck the Halls

Even though the holidays are supposed to be a time of joy and celebration, for many families who aren’t as fortunate it can be a tough time. The holidays present an abundance of expectations that are overwhelming and stressful for families who cannot afford to deck their homes with holiday cheer.

Deck the Halls is a holiday charity event in which a nominated family gets their apartment home decorated for the holidays. Decorations include a fully decorated Christmas tree, a wreath for the door, their dining table being decorated with all the trimmings, gifts under the tree and even a holiday dinner.

Lisa Purdy, who recently passed away, started this event years ago. As a longtime interior designer who worked a great deal catering to the multifamily industry, Lisa was inspired to start this group as a way to give back to the community that provided her with a successful career.

In loving memory of Lisa, we’re asking our members to help keep Lisa’s legacy going. Our apartment professionals are face-to-face with families who deserve a holiday treat such as this. If you know of one on property, please nominate them, including why you feel they deserve to have their apartment home “decked” for the holidays. You can submit nominations to Tanya Ahmann-Yates at Tahmann-yates@kingsiii.com or 281-804-7884.

Entry deadline is Nov. 28, and on the following day Nov. 29, the winner will be announced. Purdy’s Angels will decorate the winning family’s apartment on Dec. 9 and they will provide the holiday dinner on Christmas Day.
