Atlanta, GA, United States, 2007/03/27 - Presidio Homes was recently recognized for their part in the Hurricane Katrina Relief Effort during the International Builders Show held in Orlando earlier this year.
Presidio Homes was recently honored by the National Association of Home Builders at the second annual Builder Achievement Awards during the International Builders Show held in Orlando in February. Hosted by the National Housing Endowment, the event recognizes exceptional community efforts performed every year by the housing industry. Presidio Homes earned an honorable mention for their work done with Hurricane Katrina Relief, and was awarded $1,000 to be directed to the charity of their choice.
“At Presidio Homes we pride ourselves on building great communities, and when we saw that New Orleans needed help re-building their community, we were eager to jump in and lend a hand,” said Jeremy York, President of Presidio Homes. “This award means a great deal to us, but we just did what needed to be done to help those who lost everything. We are grateful to the NAHB for recognizing our efforts and allowing us to give $1,000 to charity.”
Presidio Homes designated the donation to be used to further assist those in need of housing through the Habitat of Humanity.
To be considered for the award, candidates had to submit an application along with a maximum two-page description of their efforts and any supporting materials. The submissions were then reviewed by a panel of industry professionals and builders.
Entrants were evaluated based on service need, member participation, community impact, creativity, and history of charitable giving. Both high-production companies and small-volume builders were awarded.
A Gold, Silver and Bronze Award are given to the top three entries, and five Honorable Mentions are awarded every year. Due to the huge amount of work done in the areas of Iraq Veterans and Hurricane Katrina Relief, two additional categories of honorable mention awards were added this year.
