We’ve broke ground on our second Home for HOPE! The Home Builders Association of Greater Dallas, Homes for Hope, neighbors, and trade partners joined Grand Homes in McKinney as we dug up that dirt!
More than 75 attendees participating in the ground breaking, including a large group of Grand Homes’ trade partners – subcontractors, suppliers, and consultants – all donating or discounting their labor, materials, and services to help secure a large donation upon the sale of our Hope Home.
Grand Homes CEO Stephen Brooks said, “I can speak for our company team and trade partner family when I say that giving thousands of people in struggling communities around the world a chance to work themselves out of poverty is all the motivation we need!” Joining in the groundbreaking was Mike Lennon, executive director of Homes for Hope; Bob Morris, executive vice president of the HBA; and Mike Mints, Grand Homes vice president.
Bob Morris said, “Grand Homes represents the heart of our industry in doing this project…We’re very proud to be associated with them in this act of life-saving kindness.”
Thank you to BMC Select for donating our beautiful sign for the Hope Home and the vendors & homeowners who came out to support this cause!
Grand Homes will be contributing its own overhead and profit, including the donations from our trade in the final sum given to Homes for HOPE. HOPE’s primary service is the provision of microloans in 12 of the world’s most desperate countries. Starting at only $50, these loans enable entrepreneurs to start or expand their small businesses, creating a steady income that will lift their families out of poverty.
