The final phase of sales at Woodside Homes communities has been a boon to local charitable organizations that received donations of furniture and décor totaling more than $100,000 as the model homes are being closed.

In Folsom, the builder sold out at Granite Trails and is in the final phase at Granite Reserve at Parkshore, which left furnishings and decorator items from six model homes available for the foster care and adoption charity Koinonia Family Services.

“With our fundamental philosophy that includes a love of humanity and spirit of service, we admire the organizations that provide comfortable shelter for those in need and are pleased to support their efforts with our resources,” said Scott Hoisington, president of Woodside Homes of Northern California.

Among its services, Koinonia Family Services provides safe housing and support for teens. They are using bedding from Woodside Homes to provide comfort at night, according to Camilla Ryland, community outreach director for Koinonia.

“[The] donation has given comfort to our foster teens who had been homeless,” she said. “Now they are home and safe.”

The donation was coordinated through the North State Building Industry Association’s HomeAid.

“The generosity of homebuilders like Woodside Homes is invaluable to the work HomeAid does in our community,” said Beth Kang, local executive director. “Partnerships and support from the homebuilding industry make our projects a success.”

Woodside Homes is building new neighborhoods in Folsom, Elk Grove, Roseville, Rocklin, South Sacramento, North Natomas, Rancho Cordova, Manteca, Mountain House and Vacaville. For more information, call 877-231-0059 or go to
