Phoenix, AZ - October 16, 2018 – HomeAid America, a leading national provider of housing and resources for the homeless, partnered with Taylor Morrison Foundation for a HomeAid Care Day on October 12, 2018. About 175 employees from Taylor Morrison volunteered their time to sort more than 10,000 hygiene items and to assemble 600 HomeAid CareKits. The CareKits were gifted to Phoenix-area HomeAid nonprofit partners, Sojourner Center and Family Promise of Greater Phoenix.
HomeAid CareKits are backpacks stuffed with the essential hygiene items needed to provide dignity, hope and a fresh, clean start for someone experiencing homelessness. At a minimum, each kit includes shampoo, conditioner, soap, a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, razor, shaving cream, wet wipes, tissues, feminine products, a comb, and hand sanitizer.
HomeAid America’s mission is to rebuild lives for America’s homeless through housing and community outreach. HomeAid identifies charities working to end homelessness and collaborates with the building industry to provide additional or upgraded facilities in which to house people. HomeAid’s community outreach efforts help to off-set everyday living expenses by providing basic necessities such as clothing, food and hygiene items to those in need.
As part of the volunteer day, Sheryl Palmer, Taylor Morrison's Chairman and CEO and a member of HomeAid's National Board of Directors and Executive Committee, informed employees about the existing national partnership with HomeAid and renewed the company's commitment to work with HomeAid chapters across the country, as well as to assist with chapter expansion efforts in markets where Taylor Morrison currently builds.
