John Burns Real Estate Consulting gathered four positive initiatives from the housing industry, highlighting companies that have stepped up in this time of need. A group of 20 home builders, #BuildersCare, donated more than 200,000 pieces of PPE to first responders in April. Bath and kitchen manufacturer Kohler has used its resources to create face shields, about 9,000 a day to be exact. In the near future, Kohler anticipates producing even more on a daily basis. Home builder Taylor Morrison put together a wedding ceremony for a first-responder fiancee on the lot of the couple’s soon to be built new home, and PulteGroup delivered its 57th mortgage-free home to a deserving veteran.
