From 10/14/16: Hurricane Matthew wreaked devastation throughout the southeast, including at our Sterling Bluff Apartments in Savannah, Ga. The community lost about 40% of its apartment homes due to flooding, affecting many residents and leaving them with few of their belongings.

The Grubb Properties team is working tirelessly around the clock to care for residents and help the property recover. We would like to highlight some of those efforts here.

Ron Cox, our director of maintenance and safety, is working with disaster relief company Disaster One to assess the damages, allocate necessary resources, communicate plans, and provide updates on services and reconstruction. Ron and his team members will help evaluate the extent of the damage, perform inspections, ensure that everything complies with regulations, and put the safety of the residents above all else.

Lynette Vander Heyden, regional property manager for Sterling Bluff, and her team are pitching in to handle all of the property's daily and weekly operations, giving the Sterling Bluff team time to focus completely on caring for their residents and addressing their needs.

Many residents from our other communities asked how they can help, and we are accepting donations from them and employees for the Red Cross and Salvation Army in affected areas. In our corporate offices, we are holding a household goods drive for items that the Sterling Bluff residents can use when they move back in.

We are incredibly grateful for the Grubb Properties team members, volunteers, and Disaster One members who are helping to assist those in need at Sterling Bluff and in all the other affected areas. Please continue checking this page for updates as our recovery continues.
