CRESTVIEW — Julie Voiles says she's glad that helping out your neighbor isn't so old-fashioned that it's become forgotten.
The Crestview Manor resident expressed appreciation for five Spring Creek Apartments staffers who volunteered their entire Thursday cleaning, mowing and painting at the assisted-living facility.
Manor staff — including director Becky Brice-Nash and maintenance employee Sharail Figures — appreciated the extra help.
And Voiles commended the gesture.
“It’s nice to see that people still do stuff like this,” she said.
Greystone Property Management Corporation, which manages Spring Creek, makes community involvement a priority, said Kristin Tugman, the Crestview rental complex's property manager.
“Once a year the entire company will take a day to get out of the office and find a place to volunteer in the community,” she said.
The Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce directed Tugman and her associates toward Crestview Manor.
