Nearly 200 Houston maintenance workers and their families enjoyed a night out at the Houston Astros game at Minute Maid Park last night.
The workers went above and beyond during Hurricane Harvey when several of the apartment complexes where they work were flooded, and they continue to contribute greatly as the units are restored, even as some of their own families are also rebuilding.
The tickets were courtesy of their employer Karya Property Management, who wanted to find ways to give back to the maintenance workers who serve as the backbone of their properties.
“The Karya Game Day is a part of our overall vision that family comes first,” said Swapnil Agarwal, CEO, Karya Property Management, who moved to the United States with his family when he was 15, settling in a Houston apartment.
“I know first-hand what it is like to live in an apartment. A Houston apartment was my family’s first home when we came to the U.S., and that experience has helped shape my business philosophy, which emphasizes the importance of giving back. One of our top goals is to bring a sense of community to all of our employees and our tenants who live in our apartment homes throughout Texas—a feeling of belonging that extends beyond the gates of our properties. We do this by organizing monthly get-togethers and outreach events at both our home offices in Houston and at each of our properties.”
Karya Property Management is the third largest property management company in Texas, managing 12,000 apartment units in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin.
Special thanks to the following who helped make the Karya Game Day possible: Home Depot, HD Supply, Maintenance Supply Headquarters, and PPG Paints.
