Charleston, SC (June 6, 2019): David Weekley Homes recently partnered with 19 local nonprofit organizations across the country through the company’s CARE Build Month projects.
In Charleston, the project benefited Operation Home, a nonprofit organization providing critical home repairs and other services for people in need throughout the Tri-County region. Approximately 20 Weekley team members volunteered more than 180 hours to build two accessibility ramps and two sets of stairs for families with medical needs who lack the financial resources.
“A huge thank you to you and the David Weekley team members who came out to build ramps for neighbors in need,” said Leah Donaldson, director of client services for Operation Home. “Three ramps in three weeks is amazing and we cannot thank David Weekley Homes enough. This will make a big difference to these families!”
This project improved the lives of three families by providing much needed accessibility with ramps and stairs for the homes, as well as $4,500 in donated materials and tools.
“We were delighted to work with Operation Home, an organization that does so much to help local families,” said Meagan Powell, project coordinator with David Weekley Homes. “It’s nice to see how only a few hours of our time can really improve the day-to-day lives of people in our own community.”
The project was an initiative of the company’s CARE program, which is a charitable and volunteer program that partners team members, homeowners, homebuyers and community partners with nonprofits 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 David Weekley Family Foundation donating more than $200 million to a variety of organizations through the U.S. and abroad over the past 20 years.
