Holiday Party at Pacific Gardens!

Residents, friends and anyone looking for a good time and to get in the holiday spirit: Pacific Gardens is hosting all Holiday Party on Thursday, December 12th from 5pm – 7pm.

It will be a night of fun, socializing, food and games! These games will even include prizes!

For all residents, feel free to make any side dish that you would like to share with others! (Jordan especially is looking forward to eating an unhealthy amount of food, so anything you could bring him would be appreciated)

Please contact the office to let them know if you expect to attend so that they can get a head count of all attendants.

Pacific Gardens really looks forward to a fun night being able to talk with all of you. We hope that many of you will attend and spend a little time with some of your neighbors and friends at the office.

Give the Gift of Toys this Holiday Season at Pacific Gardens!

Founded in 1947, Toys for Tots is a Non-Profit organization that we hear a lot about during the holiday season. Their mission statement reads: “The basic mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Program is to collect new unwrapped toys and distribute those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas.” The end goal of this program is take on toys from peoples around the nation, to store and sort these gifts, and to distribute them to children in situations that may be getting little in the way of gifts this Christmas.

For most of us, some of our fondest memories were of the time we spent with family and the gifts we were given on Christmas. For myself, the one gift I will always remember is the mini trampoline that I got. This was admittedly one of the worst gifts a parent could give to a household of two young boys with a penchant for running, jumping and climbing, but it was certainly memorable. For Lauren, she recounts receiving a talking Big Bird! Sadly, someone took it and never returned it (so if you are the person who did this, I am sure that she would love to get that back). Still, those kind of gifts are the things one never forgets; that feeling of having something that you played with constantly, and getting that one gift that was so great to see on Christmas day that you could not thank your parents enough.

Imagine now that you are a child that does not get to revel in Christmas the same way. Rather, your Christmas day is spent like just another day. You might sit envious of all the things that other kids got that you didn’t. You might be disheartened that you can’t have fun adventures with your own talking Big Bird, or jump high into the sky with your own trampoline. You might even be sad that Christmas just feels better for everyone else.

That is something that Toys for Tots looks to correct. Children really are our most valuable resource, and investing in them starts with providing them with opportunities to have some fun, stretch their imagination or even try something that they hadn’t before.

So Jordan, how can I help with Toys for Tots this year. What do I have to do, where do I have to go, and what is the cut-off date for donations? Well, I am glad that you asked! We are accepting new and unwrapped toys down here at the office! These can be anything for action figures, to board games and puzzles, to cards and everything in between. Please bring them to our leasing office during our office hours (8am-5pm Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm Saturday), and we will put them in our fun donation box! The deadline for donations is the 6th of December, which is quickly approaching.

Think how amazing it will feel to be the one to give someone their talking Big Bird moment! Think how great it will feel for kids who don’t normally get to celebrate Christmas the way that you and I did. That in itself is reason enough to donate. Plus, even if you don’t live in our community, there are other Robert Hancock and Co. properties that are also taking donations. This way, you can donate no matter which community you live in.

We ask that everyone that is able to help take some time to find a gift that they would like to donate. Christmas has always been more about giving, and we would love to have you help us in giving joy to children in our area. Even if you can’t, please spread the word! It will mean the world to us and those that Toys for Tots serves.

Looking Ahead! Ways to Finish out the Year Strong!

Even though we are starting to see the colder temperatures that come with November, things are just starting to heat up here at Pacific Gardens. We have several projects that are ongoing or will be underway, including repair/re-striping of the parking lots, work on our roofs and siding, and paint touchups on the hallways of the buildings. Because of all of this, as well as to better assist our residents with a couple of housekeeping items, we wanted to point out a few details that residents can pay attention to finish out the year strong!

  1. Make sure to review any information on the bulletin boards, or posted on the entry doors to your building. The same can be said about checking any emails that we send out, as well as our blog or newsletters. These all provide great information on upcoming dates for work, events, etc., and are a great quick resource. We try to put all of this information out in advance, so reviewing any/all of these is a great way to stay ahead of the game, and allow yourself to prepare for anything that might be happening in the community.
  2. Follow us on Facebook or Instagram! We also share updates on these platforms, but we also do giveaways and other fun things. It is a great way to connect with us, possibly win fun prizes and stay in the loop. You can find our Facebook HERE, and find our Instagram page HERE.
  3. Get registered on Rentcafe! The link to register can be found HERE. If you are already registered, but do not have automatic payments set up, we highly encourage it. There is even the option to set up automatic payments for your utility charges! It is a crazy convenient feature and we hope that you can get some use out of it. Moreover, residents can put in work orders on the portal, as well as make posts that other Pacific Gardens users can respond to! With all of this functionality, why would you not use it?
  4. Specifically for winter, we would like all residents to do a quick spot check of their HVAC/Thermostat, as well as checking the windows and doors of the apartment. Make sure that your furnace is heating to the correct setting displayed on your thermostat, as well as making sure that the thermostat is good on batteries, and that it, too, is working properly. Check your windows and doors for drafts, and let our office know if maintenance needs to come in and look at weather stripping or seals on windows. Heck, these kind of requests can even be submitted on rentcafe!
  5. Be on the lookout for cars that are parked in one place for more than several days at a time. We are typically pretty good about spotting these, but we have had a couple reports of cars with no permits being sat in stalls for more than a day’s time without being moved. Along these lines, please look out for cars that are parking in no parking areas, or are not parking correctly within the lines. If you see a car that is like this, you can always call our office, or call Frontline Security at (402)210-5111 if the offending car is present after our office closes.

That should about cover it! It is our hope that this covers our bases pretty well, and that this gives residents enough information to be prepared for all work we do, as well as for the fun winter weather that we are bound to experience! As always, please contact the office if you have any questions, or need help with completing any of the items on this list!

Rare Opportunities Coming Soon

At Pacific Gardens, we like to think that we’re just a little different from your standard apartment community. Wide open courtyards, vibrant and abundant with trees, flowers and shrubbery. Heck, our apartments are like a mystery box; you never know what surprises are going to be in one of them until you go inside. Who doesn’t like a little quirkiness?

Alas, we are mostly in possession of two and three bedroom apartments over here. This is great for roommates, families and the like, but what about those residents who just need a space for themselves or maybe one other person? Is there a space for someone who doesn’t need that much space?

It is possible that we won’t have one available for quite some time…

Or, it is possible that we will have two coming available in November!

That is just so wonderful. We don’t get the chance to help others find a one bedroom apartment very often, but here we are! Read below to get more information on our couplet of offerings:

  • 2503: Available first week of November, $835/month. Remodeled one bedroom, one bathroom + den w/ balcony. Second Floor, 802 sq. ft.
  • 2602: Available 11/22. $735/month. Updated one bedroom, one bathroom. Second floor. 670 sq. ft.

We are very excited to throw some one bedroom apartments into the mix here. If anyone was wondering, we still have a couple two or three bedroom options that are upcoming or are available now, but they are going fast. Whether you want to hop on something a little rarer here, or you are simply looking for a cozy home to settle into for Fall/Winter, we have you covered. Give us a shout! Our staff would love to meet you, and find you the right place with YOU in mind.

Right now, surprises and mysteries abound at Pacific Gardens!
