Centex Homes To Donate $40,000 Worth of Materials to Habitat for Humanity

INDIANAPOLIS — Continuing a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis, Centex Homes will donate approximately $40,000 worth of materials to the organization following the final day of the 2008 Indianapolis Home Show on Sunday, Feb. 3.

The donations will come from Centex’s Centerpiece homes at the show, including all salvageable lumber, countertops, lighting and plumbing fixtures and interior doors.

"We are excited to continue the relationship with our local Habitat for Humanity,” said Centex Homes regional marketing manager Vincent Laplante. “It is an incredible organization that continues to help build homes and hope for the people in and around Indianapolis. We know, through Habitat for Humanity, that this donation of materials will be shared with those local families in need.”

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis has built 17 homes this year and plans to build 18 homes in 2008, with the support of sponsors and donors. The Centex donation will add to the more than 330 homes built since 1987.

Since being established in 1992, the Indianapolis Division of Centex Homes has grown to become the second largest builder in Indiana, with more than 30 communities in central Indiana. The company builds new single-family homes, town homes, condominiums, villas and semi-custom homes ranging in prices from $99,000 to $1 million in Geist, Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, Zionsville, Avon, Franklin Township, Greenwood, Greenfield, Center Grove and Brownsburg areas.

The Indianapolis Home Show at the Indiana State Fairgrounds continues its 86-year tradition of offering the best in home products, decorating, construction and remodeling ideas for approximately 100,000 visitors to gather ideas and compare. The Indianapolis Home Show is produced by DMG World Media, an international exhibition and publishing company that produces more than 300 market leading trade exhibitions, consumer shows and fairs each year.

Donating these materials is an innovative way to give them a second life in a Habitat for Humanity home. The donation will make it easier for Habitat volunteers to build some of the 18 houses it expects to construct in 2008.
