David Weekley Homes Team Members Renovate Resource Center
Indianapolis, IN (June 18, 2019): David Weekley Homes recently partnered with 19 local nonprofit organizations across the country through the company’s CARE Build Month projects.
In Indianapolis, the project benefitted Mary Rigg Neighborhood Center, a community resource dedicated to aiding adults, youth and families with before and after school care, summer camp, employment coaching, finance classes and more. Approximately 26 Weekley team members from the company’s Indianapolis team volunteered 246 hours to transform and rebuild the facility’s Resource Center.
This project provided a new space for clients to have access to computers, telephone and fax services, the internet and copy machines.This renovated area will give clients the opportunity to search for jobs, work on projects and create resumes.
“It’s so great to see what a difference a day can make and how many lives can be impacted in such a short time,” said Kim Cantou, a sales consultant with David Weekley Homes.
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.
