We absolutely LOVE our residents! We'll start this week off with a feel good story! This is Preston! When he heard we were raising money to help make a few families holiday a little brighter, HE STEPPED UP! He built bat houses to sell and donated the proceeds toward our "RPD GIVES for the Holidays" program! He also made a bat house for us! 😃 This was an absolutely awesome gesture and we thank him and his family!
