Waukee Sales Office is a Toys for Tots Donation Location

“2020 has been a tough year for everyone. It is important to give back to people that are less fortunate than we might be. Also being a Dad of 2 now, I can’t imagine not being able to give my kids presents to open on Christmas Day.” – Cody Bilyeu, Re/Max Concepts and Greenland Homes Representative 

Stop by our sales office in Waukee to drop off toys! Spring Crest is an official drop-off location for Toys for Tots and we’re so excited to get started. When you stop by to donate toys, don’t forget to enter your name in for a drawing! We will be drawing a name right before Christmas! It could be you!

Stop by during our open house times on the weekend.

Help Bring the Joy of Christmas to Less-Fortunate Children

We did it! Thank you to everyone who helped contribute to our Charity Home this year and in the past! With this year’s donation, we reached our goal which was to raise over $500,000 total!

Thank you to the Following Contractors and Contributors!

As you can see by this list, there’s a lot of businesses involved when building a house. This list right here is why we support and use local businesses at Greenland Homes. Our cause spoke to their hearts and they wanted to help contribute to the Children’s Cancer Connection, a local charity in Des Moines. You don’t get this from national businesses! We’re so grateful for the chance to work with these companies and to call them friends.
