DAVID WEEKLEY HOMES CELEBRATES 40TH ANNIVERSARY BY GIVING BACK
Home builder donates $36,000 to local charities
Tampa, FL (May 25, 2016): One way the nation’s largest privately-held homebuilder has celebrated its 40th anniversary this year is by hosting David Weekley Homes World’s Largest Parade of Homes. From April 1-30, more than 7,200 visitors stopped by model or showcase homes across the country to see current innovations in design and décor trends. As part of the company’s charitable and philanthropic efforts, local nonprofit organizations received a donation in honor of this milestone.
A $5 donation was given to a local nonprofit organization for each visitor who registered with a sales consultant during David Weekley Homes World’s Largest Parade of Homes, amounting to more than $36,000 for 19 local charities. In Tampa, nearly $3,000 was donated to The Children’s Home.
“We appreciate all that you do for us at The Children's Home,” said Frank Massaro, director of development operations for The Children’s Home. “Thank you!”
The monetary gifts are an initiative of the company’s CARE 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 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.
“It is so great that we were able to donate money to help the little ones at The Children’s Home,” said Christus Finley, senior sales consultant and CARE council member at David Weekley Homes.
