Salt Lake City, UT (August 15, 2018): David Weekley Homes, the nation’s largest privately-held builder, hosted its fourth annual, companywide CA+RE School Supplies Drive in 17 cities across the country. In Salt Lake City, school supplies were collected for The Road Home, an organization that assists individuals and families experiencing homelessness by providing shelter, services and more. The supplies collected will be provided to children living in the shelter.
“We can’t thank David Weekley Homes enough for your support and generous donations!” said Alexa M. Black, Midvale volunteer coordinator for The Road Home. “Last night we had nearly 200 children staying in shelter, and about 150 of those children are school age. Your donation will help all of them go back to school with confidence and the supplies needed to kick of a good school year.”
Approximately $3,100 in supplies were collected from homeowners, vendors and David Weekley team members during the drive. This donation provided around 75 students with the supplies needed for the school year.
“It was so much fun collecting all of the school supplies,” said Alicia Madsen, sales consultant for David Weekley Homes in Salt Lake City. “It will make the first day of school so great for those kids!”
The School Supplies Drive is a volunteer and philanthropic initiative of the company’s CARE program, which joins team members with homeowners, homebuyers, community partners and local nonprofit organizations to live out its purpose of Building Dreams, Enhancing Lives in each of the communities in which it builds.
