Houston, TX - McGuyer Homebuilders, Inc., (MHI) was named Humanitarian of the Year in the recent Houston’s Best PRISM Awards hosted by the Greater Houston Builders Association.
The prestigious award recognized the yearlong efforts of employees of MHI, parent company of Coventry Homes and Plantation Homes. Notable among last year’s charitable endeavors was sponsorship and participation in KPRC’s Habitat for Humanity home, which saw corporate employees spend a day building a home for a single mother. Coventry Homes also built the Coventry Kids Castle, which was raffled off last year to raise more than $85,000 in the HomeAid Houston Project Playhouse initiative benefitting Houston’s homeless.
The MHI team also constructed a much-needed concession stand for the Cy-Fair Sports Association and donated 1,000 leather binders for clients of Dress for Success Houston, which helps women prepare for job interviews. Hundreds of pounds of food was donated by employees to the Houston Food Bank and monetary donations were made to The Sunshine Kids, a non-profit organization dedicated to children with cancer and the MS 150 bike race.
“Our contributions last year were far-reaching, and we made an effort to not only help those who needed it most, but to also extend our giving into many of the suburban communities in which we build,” said Gary Tesch, MHI president. “The Houston real estate community as a whole does an enormous amount of good work, and we are very honored to receive this special award.”
Plantation Homes also won for Best Product Design — $200,000-$250,000 for its Stuart V model home in Wildwood Glen. In addition, Coventry Homes and Plantation Homes were finalists for Best Product Design — $400,000-$500,000 and Coventry Homes was a finalist for Volume Builder — Best Kitchen.
