A Look Back at Pardee Homes Inland Empire’s 2017 Holiday Giving


The Pardee Homes team put together more than 200 “care kits” for HomeAid Inland Empire

Since 2002, Pardee Homes has been making the holiday season a bit warmer and jollier with its Holiday Giving campaign, dedicated to helping the temporarily homeless, families in crisis, physically or mentally challenged children, and others in need. During the 2017 holiday season, Pardee Homes Inland Empire focused on supporting two local organizations: Riverside Meals on Wheels, Inc., which depends on private donations and grants to lower the cost of meals for senior, disabled and housebound neighbors in greater Riverside County; and Carol’s Kitchen, which serves nutritious hot meals four days a week to fulfill their mission of helping those in need with dignity and compassion in the San Gorgonio Pass area.

In November 2017, Pardee Homes Inland Empire employees enjoyed serving Thanksgiving dinner for both community groups. The sales team delivered Thanksgiving meals through Riverside Meals on Wheels reaching area senior citizens, and other team members served Thanksgiving meals to the homeless at Carol’s Kitchen in Beaumont. The team also assembled more than 200 “care kits” for Carol’s Kitchen in conjunction with HomeAid Inland Empire during Homeless Awareness Month in November.

“Community giving is a core value of Pardee Homes, and while it happens all year, Holiday Giving holds a special place,” said Mike Taylor, division president for Pardee Homes Inland Empire. “Lending a hand is especially significant this time of year, and is tremendously rewarding for all of us at Pardee Homes.

“The holiday giving program has become a bright spot in the corporate culture of the company, allowing employees to celebrate the spirit of the season and the company’s ongoing commitment to supporting the communities in which we build. The giving spirit is alive and well all year at Pardee Homes, but during the holidays, our efforts have special meaning knowing we are helping families and serving the communities in which we live, work and build homes.”

Pardee Homes is proud to serve these deserving members of the community, and to support Riverside Meals on Wheels and Carol’s Kitchen in the important work they’re doing.
