The Howard Hughes Corporation, known for the award-winning master planned communities of Bridgeland and The Woodlands Hills, is dedicated to improving the quality of life in and around the communities they develop. The Fall Giving Drive that ran for the month of September raised over $90,000 for charities serving the Greater Houston region profoundly effecting these organizations and the meaningful work they do.
For every new home sold within the two communities, The Howard Hughes Corporation donated $500. The Fall Giving Drive had new homebuyers select from one of the five following charities to make the donation: Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Cy-Fair Educational Foundation, HomeAid Houston, Montgomery County Food Bank and YES to YOUTH. The charitable effort gave homebuyers the opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of others, while making a life-changing decision in purchasing their new home.
In addition to donation made by The Howard Hughes Corporation, 100% of the homebuilders in Bridgeland and The Woodlands Hills, as well as various Realtor partners, embraced the opportunity to make a difference by donating to the selected charities. Platinum contributing partners include Beazer Homes, Century Communities, Chesmar Homes, Coventry Homes, Darling Homes, David Weekley Homes, Fedrick Harris Estate Homes, Gehan Homes, Highland Homes, Lennar, M/I Homes, Newmark Homes, Partners in Building, Perry Homes, Ravenna Homes, Taylor Morrison, Trendmaker Homes, Village Builders, Westin Homes, and Ray Larson Group – Re/Max The Woodlands and Spring.
