BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Quadrant Homes, a subsidiary of Weyerhaeuser Real Estate Company, and the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund will award multiple grants totaling $24,000 to four different non-profit organizations serving Quadrant Homes' communities in King, Pierce and Skagit counties.

Earlier this year, the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund partnered with Quadrant Homes' Charitable Contributions Advisory Team to issue a call for grant applicants in two key areas: food banks serving the greater Puget Sound, and programs that promote the well-being of active duty or veteran armed forces members, firefighters, or law enforcement staff who serve to protect Quadrant Homes' communities.

Following a rigorous review process, Quadrant Homes and the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund awarded grants to the following organizations.  

  • Air Force Reserve Care and Share Society
  • Skagit County Community Action Agency
  • The Emergency Food Network of Tacoma and Pierce County
  • Maple Valley Food Bank

"These grant awards are part of an ongoing commitment here at Quadrant Homes to charitable giving, and part of our culture as a company," said Ken Krivanec, president of Quadrant Homes. "The four organizations we have selected are providing vital services in our communities, and we are happy to be able to help them continue these efforts."

Quadrant Homes is one of Washington State's largest single-family homebuilders, and is committed to supporting the needs of its customers and communities through volunteerism and giving to various non-profit organizations. So far this year, Quadrant Homes has given $38,875 in grants and sponsorships, and volunteered 277 hours in the communities they serve.
