The company’s ongoing charitable efforts usually don’t generate much publicity and “no one really cares if it helps business,” said Porter. “It just makes us feel good.”
The goal this year is to close 850 homes, which would enable Westfield Homes to donate at least $4,000 to each of its favorite charities.
In conjunction with Tampa’s channel 10, and some help from viewers who chose paint colors, floor plans and other interior design features, Westfield Homes is also sponsoring “From the Ground Up.”
All of the proceeds from the sale of the home built though this campaign will be donated to local charities. The home should be finished by the end of this summer.
NAHB members or home builders associations that have been involved in community service projects are encouraged to enter the National Housing Endowment/Home Builders Care Project of the Year award.
This is the final year the award will be presented.
The winner will be recognized at the 2004 International Builders’ Show and will receive $5,000 to be donated to the charity of his choice.
Entries must be submitted by Oct. 15.
