NAI Isaac Gives Back Through Partnership with God's Pantry Food Bank

NAI Isaac recently partnered with God's Pantry Food Bank to host its first annual "Love and Luck" Food Drive.  The food drive garnered over 7,400 pounds of food which will be distributed to hungry families within Fayette County.   "As a company, we've done several charitable projects in the past, usually around the holiday season," says Al Isaac, President of NAI Isaac.  "This year, we wanted to do something that maximized our outreach potential.  We expanded our fundraising efforts and invited the tenants at our managed properties to participate in our Food Drive. NAI Isaac matched all donations.  We are very pleased that 6,178 meals will be provided to people who need them.  It's a great effort - one that we hope to expand in the future."   

The donations couldn't come at a better time as contributions to God's Pantry Food Bank tend to decrease after the holiday season. "Unfortunately, hunger continues to be an ever-present issue within Fayette County." states Misty Simms, External Relations Manager of God's Pantry Food Bank.  "NAI Isaac utilized their established relationships with businesses across Fayette County to develop a food drive campaign that will have a positive impact on thousands of Fayette County families - a wonderful display of corporate citizenship.  They are the first commercial real estate firm in the area to initiate a partnership with our organization. Our hope is that other businesses in the area will follow their example."  God's Pantry Food Bank will continue to accept online donations to the Love and Luck Food Drive.  To make a contribution visit our online donation page

Plans to demolish and rebuild a signature downtown location have created a buzz around Lexington.  NAI Isaac recently sold +/-0.3795 acres located at 367-375 East Main Street and 107-111 Eastern Avenue to local developers who plan to construct a new 5-story mixed use building.  Per the development plan, the first floor will house a bank and the second through fifth floors will house 24 two-bedroom condominiums. The building will also feature a rooftop garden and recreation area.  Plans for a two-story parking garage are also underway.
