Pangea Gives Back to Neighborhoods Through Community Service

Chicago-based Pangea Properties spent the month of June giving back to several of the Chicago neighborhoods in which the company owns and operates residential communities. Through its community service arm, Pangea Cares, the firm organized three days of volunteering, completing outdoor projects on Chicago’s South and West Sides.

Volunteer sites included the South Merrill Community Gardens in the Jackson Park Highlands neighborhood; Vernon Park Gardens in West Woodlawn; and several Pangea-managed buildings. 

“We were thrilled to work with a new partner, South Merrill Community Gardens, as it sits so close to many of our communities,” said Kelsey Lake, Pangea operations manager. “We look forward to working with them again in the future.” 

Pangea Cares will continue to gather volunteers for neighborhood and property-level beautification initiatives, as well as plan regular events to support the Chicago, Indianapolis and Baltimore communities.
