Orlando, FL (April 21, 2015): By partnering with homeowners, REALTORS® and homeowner’s associations, David Weekley Homes turned the seasonal chore of spring cleaning into an opportunity to donate nearly 5,200 pounds of clothing and household items, and an additional $5,200 monetary donation to benefit The Mustard Seed of Central Florida Furniture and Clothing Bank.
The Mustard Seed’s mission is to provide clothing and furniture assistance to help families and individuals rebuild their lives after a disaster or personal tragedy. Donations are distributed to pre-approved families to help them re-establish a home.
Weekley’s division office and each of their communities in Orlando, including Oakland Park, Johns Lake Landing, Baldwin Park, Spring Lake at Celebration, Randal Park and Laureate Park at Lake Nona, each collected clothing, shoes, dishes, light furniture and more during the one-day event. The Weekley Family Foundation then matched the donation dollar for pound with a check for nearly $5,200.
As part of its culture, David Weekley Homes strives to make a positive impact in the lives of everyone it touches and in all the communities it builds through its purpose, Building Dreams, Enhancing Lives. This is accomplished by company team members volunteering countless hours to different organizations in their communities, and by the Weekley Family Foundation donating more than $100 million to a variety of organizations through the U.S. and abroad since 1976.
