CARE to Make a Difference!
At David Weekley Homes, what gets us out of bed every morning is the chance to live out Our Purpose of Building Dreams, Enhancing Lives. Our Team Members believe that each new day is another opportunity to live out that purpose by making a positive impact through giving our time, talents and resources. In doing so, we are truly making a difference and are continuing to enhance communities across the country.
By joining together with our Team Members, Homeowners, Homebuyers, vendors and community partners, we have an opportunity to share Our Purpose with the extended David Weekley Homes family – and into the community – through the robust volunteer and philanthropic efforts of our CARE program. CARE, as we define it, is:
C – Committed to Building Community Character… Encouraging a culture of caring and contribution with our Team Members, Customers and community
A – Active in our Community…engaging our communities with Team Members completing hundreds of projects and through company earnings and The David Weekley Family Foundation donating more than $200 million to worthy causes over the past 20 years.
R – Responsible to our Community… Living up to our responsibility of Building Dreams and Enhancing the Lives of our Team, Customers and community
E – Enhancing our Community… Living a life of service to provide true meaning and purpose
For more than 20 years, our Team Members have made a difference in the cities where we live and work by volunteering thousands of hours each year with various local nonprofit organizations. Whether it’s hosting a blood drive, volunteering at a soup kitchen or collecting school supplies for children in need, our Team Members are bringing back a sense of community to our neighborhoods and cities.
Caring for Others
While our CARE program focuses on many local initiatives, we also work with a variety of national organizations as part of our companywide initiatives. These nonprofit organizations include Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House, the National MS Society and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Ideally, we support and partner with those organizations committed to education and youth development, as well as those who focus on family values and strengthening. Through our companywide initiatives, we have been able to positively impact thousands of lives.
Take a look at the ways we are making a difference year-round in cities and communities across the country:
CARE Build Month… Enhancing lives one nail at a time
Our CARE Build Month initiative allows us to share our unique skillset as home builders to complete building projects with a variety of nonprofit organizations. From ramp projects and kitchen renovations to building homes or building beds for underserved children, Team Members work alongside our Homeowners and trade and vendor partners to lend a hand by completing projects that impact the lives of those less fortunate.
CARE School Supplies Drive
We believe that it’s important for all students to have the tools needed for success in school. Through our CARE School Supplies Drive, we work together with our extended David Weekley Homes family in the cities where we live and build, to ease the financial burden of this daunting expense for thousands of families and provide deserving children with the supplies needed for the new school year.
Giving Thanks, Giving Back Thanksgiving Drive
Our Giving Thanks, Giving Back Thanksgiving Drive is an opportunity for us to count our blessings by lending a helping hand to provide families in need with a hearty Thanksgiving meal. With the help of Homeowners, Homebuyers and the community, we are able to provide more than 100,000 pounds of frozen turkeys and nonperishable items to more than 20 nonprofit organizations each year.
Together we can create a culture of caring and contribution. We hope that you will consider joining our Team Members to build stronger communities and enhance the lives of those in need!
