DAVID WEEKLEY HOMES DONATES 1,000 CARE PACKAGES, $10,000 TO BENEFIT TROOPS
Orlando, FL (June 23, 2015): Proud to support the military, the Orlando division of David Weekley Homes, the nation’s largest privately-held home builder, teamed up with homeowners, vendor partners, REALTORS® and Lake County Fire Fighters to donate nearly 1,000 care packages to U.S. troops overseas, doubling their goal of 500.
After collecting the hundreds of pounds of items, David Weekley Homes team members and helpers spent hours assembling the care packages with snacks, candy and toiletries for USO Central Florida.
