Team members collect more than 100,000 pounds of food for the holiday
Phoenix, AZ (December 7, 2015): David Weekley Homes hosted a company-wide Thanksgiving Drive and collected more than 100,000 pounds of turkey and nonperishable items.
In Phoenix, the Thanksgiving Drive benefited Save the Family, a nonprofit organization that provides transitional housing and support services to families with children to help conquer homelessness.
Nearly 900 pounds of food was collected during the two-week drive. Phoenix team members delivered the food items to the organization to distribute to families in time for the holiday.
"Save the Family is so grateful for the support of David Weekly Homes," said Jacki Taylor, CEO of Save the Family. "Because of their generosity, hundreds of children from homeless, low-income and veteran families from around the Valley will receive much needed support this holiday season."
The David Weekley Family Foundation also donated $5,000 to benefit the local charity.
The drive was an initiative of the company’s CARE program, which is a charitable and volunteer program that joins team members with homeowners, homebuyers, community partners and local nonprofit organizations to live out its purpose, Building Dreams, Enhancing Lives in all the communities in which it builds. 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 $100 million to a variety of organizations throughout the U.S. and abroad over the past 20 years.
