Showing They Care – Riverside Homes Supports Davidson Cares Clay Day

October 9, 2020

 | 

In 2016, Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson decided to put together a clay shoot fundraiser to support worthy causes. “I had no idea if anyone would want to be a sponsor,” Sherry said. “My first call was to Chris Wood (co-owner of Riverside Homes). He supported us with the largest sponsorship and has continued to generously do so every year since!”

 

The relationship between Davidson Realty and Riverside Homes is longstanding and built on a foundation of mutual respect. Davidson Realty and Riverside Homes often collaborate on projects and have enjoyed developing a strong relationship.

 

From lunch and learn opportunities to wine and appetizer events, Riverside Homes regularly invites Davidson Realty agents to their model homes throughout Northeast Florida to share information about new developments and floor plan designs. Riverside Homes is always a gracious host that, simply, does things right! Recently, Riverside Homes and Davidson Realty teamed up to create a series of videos to highlight the features and amenities of one of the newest communities in St. Johns County, SilverLeaf.

 

Riverside Homes is a locally-owned and award-winning home builder in Jacksonville, Florida with over 15 years of new home building experience including the 2019 Southern Living Idea House in Amelia Island, FL. Riverside Homes builds in amazing neighborhoods and provides designs that fit the way today’s families live. Every component of a Riverside Home is carefully crafted to ensure quality and value. Riverside Homes is currently building in St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra, Amelia Island, Fernandina Beach, St. Johns, Yulee, and Fleming Island.

 

“Riverside Homes is special. Chris Wood and Matt Roberts (owners of Riverside Homes) are genuine, caring, and filled with integrity. They are amazing people to do business with. What truly amazes me about this team is the respect and relationships they have with other builders who are their competitors,” Sherry continues.

 

Over the past four years, Davidson Cares Clay Day has raised more than $220,185 to support charities in need because of generous sponsors like Riverside Homes. To learn more about Riverside Homes visit their website at www.myriversidehome.com or call 904-530-4720.

Davidson Cares adds Builders Care as Clay Day beneficiary

September 19, 2019

 | 

We are thrilled to announce the addition of Builders Care as beneficiary of our 4th annual Davidson Cares Clay Day event on Thursday, October 24! Other sponsored charities include St. Augustine Youth Services (SAYS) and Investing in Kids (INK!).

 

The charitable arm of Northeast Florida Builders Association (NEFBA), Builders Care was created in 2001 in conjunction with HabiJax to fill a very specific gap in services. While HabiJax builds homes for those in need, Builders Care focuses on home repairs for low income and elderly residents in Duval, St. Johns, Nassau, Clay and Baker counties.

 

“So many people have homes that desperately need repairs,” said Justin Brown, Executive Officer of Builders Care. “Many of them are older widows, many disabled, who need roof repairs or access ramps. We are the boots on the ground helping to keep them in their homes.”

Davidson Cares Clay Day: Focus on Five Learning Years

October 11, 2018

 | 

We are less than 3 weeks from this year’s sport shooting event, the 3rd Annual Davidson Cares Clay Day! This year’s event will directly benefit St. Augustine Youth Services (SAYS), Take Stock in Children and Five Learning Years (FLY).

 

The services these organizations provide are vital to Northeast Florida’s children. We want to give more information about each charity to let Clay Day participants know exactly where their contributions are going. Here we are focusing on FLY.

 

What is FLY?

According to the Florida Department of Education, extensive research on infant brain development shows that a child’s first five years are the most important time for learning.Because of this, FLY aims to prepare kids for learning success to ensure all children arrive at kindergarten academically, socially, emotionally and physically ready to learn.

 

FLY was created in 2012 after the INK! Executive Committee met with Dr. Joseph Joyner, then Superintendent of St. Johns County Schools, to discuss the issue of children entering kindergarten unprepared. The INK! team began forming FLY to ensure all kids benefit from these crucial years and start school ready to learn.

 

What programs do they offer?

FLY utilizes several resources to promote early learning including Nemours BrightStart!, Head Start, Healthy Families Florida, and Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) programs. Through these programs, every child in Florida regardless of family income has access to programs to prepare them for kindergarten. Learn more at the FLY web page.

 

How is FLY continuing to develop its services for kids?

The FLY task force meets regularly to determine current efforts to prepare kids for kindergarten and develop strategic plans to expand services where possible.

 

In addition to participating in Clay Day, how can people help FLY?

They accept tax-deductible donations (one-time or ongoing) through the INK! website. INK! eagerly encourages individuals andcompanies to donate. Nearly 90% of INK! donations are returned to schools to directly help students!
