2023 Volunteer Program
November 13, 2023
Can developers and real estate agents make a difference in Montgomery County? They can when they come together to volunteer for local charities.
This year, we launched a joint volunteer program with real estate agents and our sister community of Woodforest aimed at giving back to the greater community. We got the idea after a successful Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County Build Day in 2022 that saw 30 local real estate agents and staff from our development teams build 10 walls — about half needed for a two-bedroom home.
The experience was so rewarding, we had to do it again on a larger scale. This year more than 100 volunteers packed food for more than 5,500 meals, helped build five homes and replaced information cards on 200 dog kennels.
The volunteer program launched in February with a visit to the Montgomery County Food Bank. About 30 volunteers split into two teams to sort and pack more than 2,300 pounds of produce and fill 368 boxes of bagged rice and beans for boxes of meals.
Next, 25 volunteers visited the Montgomery County Animal Shelter in April, replacing information cards and cardholders on 200 kennels there.
September saw a return trip to Habitat for Humanity where more than 30 Realtors and staff from Grand Central Park and Woodforest laid the groundwork for the construction of five new homes.
We finished out the year volunteering at Meals on Wheels where a crew of 30 split into two shifts and packed 800 bags of food for program recipients.
It has been a very rewarding year. We can’t wait to do it again in 2024!
