SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Taylor Morrison Home Corporation (NYSE: TMHC), a leading national homebuilder and developer, is supporting relief efforts through a number of corporate and employee initiatives across Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
"Our hearts are with Texas and our Houston team members and homeowners as they continue to brave this devastating storm and unprecedented flooding," said Sheryl Palmer, Taylor Morrison chairman, president and chief executive officer. "We have contributed to the American Red Cross to quickly bring relief to those most impacted right now, and encourage others in our industry, and anyone who is able, to give as they can."
Taylor Morrison has donated a combined $250,000 to the American Red Cross Harvey Fund and to an internal Harvey Care Fund. Additional team member contributions to the employee Harvey Care Fund will be matched by the company, dollar-for-dollar, to help provide relief and support to Taylor Morrison and Darling Homes staff displaced and impacted by the storm.
Company model homes in nearby communities have been repurposed to provide shelter, and some Taylor Morrison and Darling Homes team members are welcoming others into their own homes. "We say time and time again that we're a family at Taylor Morrison, but to hear our Texas team members taking care of each other in this way reminds me just how true that sentiment is," added Palmer.
Local division leaders remain in close contact with all of Taylor Morrison employees in the Houston area, and neighboring staff members who are not immediately impacted by Hurricane Harvey are already at work supporting relief efforts. When appropriate, Taylor Morrison is committed to helping rebuild impacted communities and supporting our customers and families as much as possible.
Taylor Morrison, including its Darling Homes operations, employs approximately 215 people in Houston. Both Taylor Morrison and Darling Homes division offices will remain closed until Tuesday, Sept. 5.
