"From veggies, pastas, and soups to coffee, cake mixes, and more, our donors really came through for those in need this holiday season, and we are so grateful," said Adam Cornett, Atlanta Division President for David Weekley Homes. "With the exception of the 151 frozen turkeys that were delivered to our Roswell headquarters on the final day of the drive, most of the nonperishable food items were delivered through our Amazon wish list. The remainder were dropped off at our model homes throughout metro Atlanta. I know I speak for my whole team when I say we are so honored to work for a company that places such a high value on giving back. We can't think of a better way to kick off the holiday season than to fill a Ryder truck with food and bring some holiday cheer to our neighbors in need."
