BB&T and The Atlas Companies To Support Habitat for Humanity During “Score Your Home” Sales Weekends


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 are only available during these two weekends. Incentives include:
