Campus Crest Communities, Inc. (NYSE: CCG), a leading developer, builder, owner and manager of high-quality, resident life focused student housing, today announced that it has recruited Fortegra Financial Corporation (NYSE: FRF), Onyx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Brandywine Realty Trust (NYSE: BDN) to participate in its eighth annual “Gobbler Giveaway” event. Together, the companies will partner with 13 different charities and faith-based organizations to provide more than 1,900 turkeys to families in need this holiday season.

The annual event began shortly after Campus Crest’s inception in 2004 and is an integral part of the company’s broad corporate social responsibility program. Over the past seven years, Campus Crest has steadily ramped up its efforts to grow the initiative, resulting in the donation of approximately 4,000 turkeys to residents in communities where the company owns and operates student housing properties. This is the first year Campus Crest has enlisted the help of other businesses to grow the initiative and replicate the event in their respective communities.

This year, Campus Crest will donate a total of 675 turkeys. The company’s first “Gobbler Giveaway” event of the year took place on Friday, November 16 th at Kingdom Fellowship Christian Center located in Charlotte, NC. Campus Crest will host four additional events at the following locations:

Our annual ‘Gobbler Giveaway’ continues to be one of our most successful community events and we are pleased to have respected companies like Fortegra, Onyx Pharmaceuticals, and Brandywine join us in our efforts to feed families in need this holiday season.”
