BB&T and The Atlas Companies To Support Habitat for Humanity During “Score Your Home”
Winston-Salem, N.C. - BB&T Corporation (NYSE: BBT) and The Atlas Companies announced
today that Habitat for Humanity will be the beneficiary of the unique home sales
event, “Score Your Home,” scheduled for March 20-21 and March 27-28 across the Triad.
“Score Your Home,” a two-weekend schedule of open houses, will feature 10 new communities
in Forsyth, Guilford and Alamance counties. In conjunction with area real estate
agencies Coldwell Banker Triad, RE/MAX, Lewis & Clark, Allen Tate and Ed Price &
Associates the organizations will host basketball conference themed open houses in
the neighborhoods each weekend from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. daily.
For every home sold during the event, BB&T will make a donation to the Habitat affiliate
where the home is located. Additional funds will be raised through a raffle awarding
one lucky winner a decorative exterior lighting package for their home. Proceeds
will go to the local Habitat affiliates in Alamance and Forsyth counties as well
as to those in Greensboro and High Point.
“Habitat has a long history of making affordable homes possible and we are proud
to offer our financial support to help strengthen neighborhoods across the communities
we serve,” said T. Shane Shuler, a BB&T commercial real estate development officer.
“‘Score Your Home’ is a wonderful opportunity for families to investigate new residential
properties within their own communities,” said Robin S. Wintringham, executive director
Habitat for Humanity of Alamance County, N.C., Inc. "The event will offer an extra
special advantage with the donations that BB&T makes to local Habitat affiliates
for each home sold during these two weekends. ‘Score Your Home’ will be a real boon for
the local building market, both the for-profit and non-profit sectors."
Home buyers will also benefit from the “Score Your Home” sales weekend. The neighborhoods
offer a wide selection of price points as well as building lots, condos, townhomes
and new homes. BB&T and Atlas are offering savings and practical incentives that
