Ensuring schools have the supplies they need is the goal for one north Texas home builder.
Riverside Homebuilders has donated over $7,000 to schools in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, including Godley Elementary School, as part of its Back-to-School Home Sale.
Riverside set aside money from new home sales this fall, with each home buyer given the opportunity to designate a school as the recipient of their contribution. Their donations have benefitted 25 schools in 15 cities.
“We don’t just build here; we live here too,” Riverside Homebuilders Marketing Vice President Todd Greenfield said. “Our kids go to these schools and we know how hard teachers work. This is our way of thanking the real unsung heroes in our cities and towns.”
Recipients ranged from elementary schools to high schools and one college. Some donations have been allocated for scholarships, supplies and some much-needed equipment.
Godley ISD Superintendent Rich Dear said they received $500 from Riverside.
“Although we do not have specific plans for the monetary donation yet, we can assure that it will go directly towards benefitting our students and their educational experience at Godley Elementary School,” Dear said. “Godley ISD always appreciates the support of businesses in our area. Riverside Homes has invested in the future of the Godley community in many ways and we are extremely grateful for their partnership.”
Riverside builds in 24 communities in the Metroplex with two key values driving them: quality and comfort, according to its website. They have three subdivisions around the Godley area, including Canyon Ridge, Rustic Meadows and Crossroads at Rough Creek.
