Camden focuses on our nine core values to guide us every day. One of those values is “Always do the right thing.” Camden stepped up to the plate in many ways throughout the year, supporting our residents, communities and employees during a challenging time.
Camden is the only multi-family company to help its residents directly. The Camden Cares Resident Relief Fund was enacted to assist residents directly affected by the COVID-19 shutdowns. The response was overwhelming and made the difference in the lives of over 7,000 residents.

Healthcare Hero Meals
In April and May, it was our honor to provide meals for Camden residents who are healthcare professionals on the front lines of COVID-19. We sent meals to over 150 residents, serving approximately 1,900 healthcare workers and their families. Our hearts are filled with joy, knowing we provided a bright moment in their busy days.

Finding New Ways to Help
Many of our large Camden Cares events like volunteering at local Ronald McDonald House, improving a veteran’s home or volunteering with the Cleaning the World Foundation were canceled this year due to the pandemic. Camden still wanted to help and be able to get our employees involved this holiday season. Here are just a few way our team members across the nation helped out local communities:
Camden’s First Annual Turkey Trot was born! Any team member who signed up and completed a 5K, Camden would then donate $50 to a local food bank. Over 400 team members across the country trotted with their families. A donation of $50,000 was sent to local food banks to help end hunger.
