David Weekley Homes Team Members Build Ramps for Texas Ramp Project
Dallas, TX (June 20, 2019): David Weekley Homes recently partnered with 19 local nonprofit organizations across the country through the company’s CARE Build Month projects.
In Dallas, the project benefitted The Texas Ramp Project, an organization involved in building wheelchair ramps for disabled or elderly clients across the state. Approximately 168 Weekley team members from the company’s Dallas division joined together with family, friends and vendors to build 21 ramps for families with medical needs who lack the financial resources.
“Texas Ramp Project is proud to have partnered with David Weekley Homes for a fourth year,” said Gary Stopani, Texas Ramp Project board member and Dallas regional coordinator. “Your impact will ripple through these neighborhoods as these folks can now continue to live in their homes more independently.”
“I love partnering with The Texas Ramp Project because I can get out in our community and use my own two hands to help build something tangible for a good cause,” said Neville Crowell, a sales consultant with David Weekley Homes. “We get to meet the people we are helping and their families and I can’t think of anything else more rewarding.”
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.
