Just in time for Thanksgiving, Lincoln Property Company is pleased to announce that it has collected more than 130 boxes of canned and other non-perishable foods for So Others Might Eat (SOME). Lincoln Property employees and building tenants were responsible for the generous amount of donated food, which took extra volunteers to sort.
