Houston, December 6, 2010 ‐‐ Younan Properties and its tenants are celebrating the Spirit of the Season by participating in a local Houston food drive. Younan Square located at 1010 Lamar in downtown Houston, 1700 West Loop, and 2323 Shepherd Place in the Galleria district are combining efforts to support the Houston Food Bank in its holiday food drive collection from December 13‐17. Younan Square, in its third year of participation, kicked off the drive earlier on November 29 and will continue its collection efforts through December 17. Building tenants, staff and visitors are encouraged to donate non‐perishable food, which will be given to thousands of local residents who are struggling this holiday season.
According to Roland Chua, Younan Properties' Regional Vice President of Leasing & Operations for Houston, this is an opportunity to give back to the community. "We are much more than just an owner and operator of commercial office buildings, we are part of our communities. As community partners, we believe in supporting important local organizations such as the Houston Food Bank. At this special time of year, we encourage everyone to step out to help local Houstonians."
