PulteGroup’s Built to Honor® Program Dedicating 75th Mortgage-Free Home on Veterans Day
Milestone Home Will Be Delivered to Wounded U.S. Army Veteran in Dallas, TX
This Veterans Day, national homebuilder PulteGroup will dedicate its milestone 75th mortgage-free home through its Built to Honor® program, which supports wounded veterans and their families by providing mortgage-free homes. On Friday, the Company will present United States Army Sergeant David Speights with the keys to his brand-new home at Pulte’s Whitewing Trails community in Princeton, Texas.
“It is an honor and privilege to gift this home to one of our nation’s heroes as an expression of our gratitude for his service to our country, and is especially meaningful on Veterans Day,” said Bryan Swindell, President of PulteGroup’s Dallas division. “We are proud to welcome Sergeant Speights and his family to their new home, and hope it will be a source of joy, comfort and a place to create wonderful memories together.”
After being surprised with the life-changing news that they were selected to receive a new home in April, and breaking ground in May, Sergeant Speights and his family will see their completed 4-bedroom, two-story home for the very first time at the dedication event. They last saw the home during its framing stage in July for Notes of Love, a special event where messages of gratitude and well wishes were written inside the walls by PulteGroup employees, trade partners and community members for the Speights family.
The home will be delivered in partnership with Building Homes for Heroes®, a national non-profit organization devoted to bringing renewed hope and service to injured veterans. This is the sixth Built to Honor home built in the Dallas area.
