St. Johns is not just the place where we build homes, it’s also the place where we’ve chosen to live and raise our own families. Building up our community has two meanings to us: it’s about creating spaces for families to live, but also about supporting those in our community who are less fortunate. For this reason, we are actively engaged with several charitable causes.
Clays for a Cause is our premier annual event that brings together employees, trade partners, vendors, bankers, and others who have contributed to our business for a friendly clay-shooting tournament. It began in 2012 as a way to celebrate the holidays and give back to our community, and has grown into one of the most anticipated fundraisers of the year.
In its first four years, Clays for a Cause raised over $50,000 for local charities. Past recipients of monies donated include St. Augustine Youth Services (SAYS), the Cotta Family, the Monique Burr Foundation, K9’s for Warriors, St. Johns Housing Partnership, and a local veteran in need of housing assistance.
It’s always heartwarming to see a family settling into their new home. However, there are many people – even in our own community – who live in houses that are in desperate need of repair and cannot afford the reconstruction costs. Builder’s Care is a charitable arm of Northeast Florida Builder’s Association (NEFBA) that helps elderly, low income, and disabled residents, including veterans, that are living in dilapidated housing fix up their homes. These repairs provide a better quality of life by making homes more livable, safer, and handicapped-accessible.
For every home sold, we donate $100 to Builder’s Care. We believe that everyone deserves to live in dignity, with basic comforts, and without the fear they will be forced out of their homes.
As a community homebuilder, we have the tools and skills that it takes to, well, build things. We are happy to donate time and resources to local projects to help further enhance our beautiful community.
Here are just some of the projects we have completed in the St. Johns and St. Augustine areas:
We are honored to be a part of this community. We hope that our love for our neighbors, respect for the environment, and dedication to making our community a great place to live is evident in everything we do.
