San Antonio, TX (September 12, 2017): David Weekley Homes hosted its third companywide CA+RE School Supplies Drive in 18 cities across the country. In San Antonio, school supplies were collected for SAMMinistries, an interfaith ministry that addresses homelessness in San Antonio by building self-sufficiency in a dignified manner and providing shelter, housing and services to those who are homeless.
Items were collected over the course of nearly a month from David Weekley team members, homeowners and homebuyers during the drive, which benefitted many local children. 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 is such an honor to work for a company that believes in helping others,” said Jennifer Steger, a Lead Sales Consultant and member of the CARE Council at David Weekley Homes. “It’s really wonderful to know that we are helping children start school with the supplies they need.”
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.
