Atlanta, GA (June 13, 2019): David Weekley Homes recently partnered with 19 local nonprofit organizations across the country through the company’s CARE Build Month projects.
Approximately 20 Weekley team members from the company’s Atlanta division partnered with HomeAid Atlanta on a project that benefitted Making A Way Housing, an organization dedicated to providing emergency, transitional and permanent supportive housing for homeless adults. Together, they volunteered 100 hours to provide facility maintenance and repairs.
“Their skills, hard work and patience resulted in a fabulous new deck for the residents to use, as well as some much-needed paint improvements,” said Karen McLane, director of community outreach with HomeAid Atlanta. “These improvements provide a welcoming and shaded place for residents to gather and encourage one another as they navigate next steps in their lives.”
This project benefitted 30 people and included a $1,000 donation to purchase materials and tools. In addition, $2,500 was donated from the David Weekley Homes CARE Fund.
“The David Weekley Atlanta CARE team had a very productive and meaningful experience working with HomeAid Atlanta,” said John McNeill, builder and CARE team lead with David Weekley Homes. “We look forward to future partnerships to assist in HomeAid’s great causes.”
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.
