Charleston, SC (May 25, 2017): David Weekley Homes, the nation’s largest private home builder, recently partnered with the Lowcountry Foodbank to help feed the hungry with a peanut butter drive held throughout the Charleston area. During the three week-long drive, Weekley Homes collected more than 200 pounds of peanut butter, equaling to 170 meals.
An additional $125 donation provided 750 meals bringing the total meal count for the drive to 921. According to The Lowcountry Foodbank, every dollar donated to the organization creates six meals for families, children and seniors experiencing hunger.
The peanut butter drive is just one way that David Weekley Homes strives to make a positive impact in all the communities it builds in through its CARE program. For more than 20 years, The David Weekley Family Foundation has donated more than $100 million to worthy causes here in the U.S. and abroad, and our Team Members volunteer thousands of hours each year working with various organizations. Through this strong culture of volunteerism, we are able to further live out Our Purpose by bringing back a sense of community to our neighborhoods and cities by devoting our collective resources and talents to many worthy causes.
