Team members collect more than 100,000 pounds of food for the holiday
CHARLESTON, SC (December 8, 2015): David Weekley Homes hosted a company-wide Thanksgiving Drive and collected more than 100,000 pounds of turkey and nonperishable items.
In Charleston, the Thanksgiving Drive benefited Lowcountry Food Bank, an agency that helps distribute more than 23 million pounds of food to 200,000 families, children and senior citizens each year.
Approximately 1,000 pounds of food was collected during the two-week drive. Charleston team members delivered the food items to the organization to distribute to families in time for the holiday.
“The donations will help many families in the Lowcountry, including flood victims and many in bad situations,” said Kevin Gravely, Volunteer Coordinator. “This will give them something to be thankful for this holiday and into the New Year. We truly appreciate everything David Weekley Homes has done for the Lowcountry Food Bank this holiday season.”
The drive was an initiative of the company’s CARE program, which is a charitable and volunteer program that joins team members with homeowners, homebuyers, community partners and local nonprofit organizations to live out its purpose, Building Dreams, Enhancing Lives in all the communities in which it builds. This is accomplished by company team members volunteering countless hours to different organizations in their communities and by The David Weekley Family Foundation donating more than $100 million to a variety of organizations throughout the U.S. and abroad over the past 20 years.
