Atlanta, GA (September 14, 2017): David Weekley Homes hosted its third companywide CA+RE School Supplies Drive in 18 cities across the country. In Atlanta, school supplies were collected for Children’s Restoration Network, a nonprofit agency that has served homeless children and mothers in Atlanta for more than 23 years. Through various programs, the organization helps children receive basic necessities, including food, school supplies and scholarships.
Backpacks and school supplies were collected from David Weekley team members and homeowners during the drive. After collecting the donations, team members sorted the supplies and delivered them to the organization to ensure the supplies would be distributed in time for the students to begin school with the tools needed to be successful.
“It’s a good feeling being able to provide school supplies through this drive,” said Caitlin Adkins, a Project Coordinator with David Weekley Homes in Atlanta. “Any way we can help the kids in our community have less stress in their transition back to school will provide them with the confidence they need to succeed from the start.”
The drive 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 $100 million to a variety of organizations through the U.S. and abroad over the past 20 years.
