THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Feb. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LGI Homes, Inc. (NASDAQ: LGIH), in collaboration with its long-time charitable partner Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County, TX (Habitat Montgomery County), is proud to announce its participation in the construction of four homes for four deserving families in Conroe, TX. The event will take place from February 27th through March 4th. Participating trade partners have agreed to donate their materials, time, and expertise to help support this worthy cause. At the end of the week-long Blitz Build, the homes will be move-in ready for the four families partnering with Habitat Montgomery County.
“We are very proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity on this extraordinary endeavor,” stated Charles Merdian, Chief Financial Officer at LGI Homes and Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County Board of Directors Member. “Making families’ dreams of homeownership a reality is deeply embedded in LGI Homes’ DNA. For twenty years, we have had the privilege of seeing firsthand the positive, lasting impact that ownership can have on families and communities. The Blitz Build project allows us to take the experience, expertise and partnerships we have built as one of the nation’s largest homebuilders and apply them in an unprecedented way – building four new homes for four deserving families in the span of only one week. We are incredibly excited about this project and deeply grateful to Habitat for Humanity for inviting us to participate, to our employees who volunteered to plan and manage the builds, to our trade partners for committing their time and resources to make the project possible and to the City of Conroe and their inspectors for committing to help us accomplish this endeavor in a condensed timeframe.”
LGI Homes’ and Habitat Montgomery County’s first-ever Blitz Build marks the beginning of construction in the last section of the all Habitat-occupied subdivision, Cedar Creek. This chapter has a long history of successfully bringing together individual volunteers and corporate support to execute the mission. With the introduction of this Blitz Build, Habitat Montgomery County is raising awareness of the need for affordable housing in our community and the ability of homeownership to create transformational change.
“This is an exciting project for Habitat Montgomery County, our families, and this community. LGI Homes and their local trade partners are making a tremendous, life-changing investment and contribution to affordable housing with this audacious project,” said Vicki Johnson, executive director for Habitat Montgomery County. “Getting families in safe, decent, affordable housing is a now issue. This Blitz Build helps Habitat Montgomery County address the critical need for a permanent place to call home now. We are blessed by the efforts of these local businesses. It is extraordinary.”
