David Weekley Homes celebrates nationwide event by giving back

Home builder donates $43,000 to local charities


David Weekley Homes celebrated more than 40 years of “Building Dreams, Enhancing Lives” by hosting the third annual David Weekley Homes World’s Largest Showcase of Homes.

Through the month of April, more than 8,700 visitors stopped by model or showcase homes across the country to see current innovations in design and decor trends.

As part of the company’s charitable and philanthropic efforts, a $5 donation was given to a local nonprofit organization for each visitor who registered with a sales consultant during David Weekley Homes World’s Largest Showcase of Homes, amounting to more than $43,000 for 19 local charities. In Jacksonville, more than $3,100 was donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville.

“Ronald McDonald House is grateful for the amazing opportunity, through the Showcase of Homes, to raise awareness about its mission in different communities around Northeast Florida,” said Carol Harrison, development director for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville. “David Weekley Homes truly understands the importance of supporting their communities and we will forever be thankful to this company and their generous employees for their support.”

The monetary gifts are one of the many ways David Weekley Homes lives out its purpose — Building Dreams, Enhancing Lives — in all the communities in which it builds. The builder joins with team members, homeowners and community partners to engage with communities to make a difference through volunteer and philanthropic efforts.

“It was one thing to share with our customers that we were donating this money to Ronald McDonald, but it’s another that we were able to go there and experience what our donations were going toward and be able to share that with our community!” said Jennifer Jeffreys, lead sales consultant for the Jacksonville division and CARE committee member.
