Fulton Homes’ Home Run Program Steps Up to the Plate to Support Local Charities
Arizona Diamondback fans have more than a stellar line-up to look forward to this season, because every cheer for a home run is a cheer for a great charity. With every homerun hit by the D-backs, Fulton Homes will donate $150 to be shared by the Central Arizona Mountain Rescue Association and the Youth Assistance Foundation with the Fulton Homes Home Run program.
Now in its fifth season, Fulton Homes has raised tens of thousands of dollars through the Fulton Homes Home Run program, which this year spans the entire regular season and will end with this year’s game against the LA Dodgers in early October.
Also known as the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Mountain Rescue team, the Central Arizona Mountain Rescue Association has a rich history of saving lives since its establishment in 1969, and is trained technically to perform search and rescue missions in the backcountry of Arizona. The Maricopa County Sherriff’s Office Youth Assistance Foundation works to prevent youth violence through efforts like the Explorer Program which allows 14-21 year-olds to become positively involved with law enforcement and the Sherriff’s Youth Boxing Team, which gives young men ages 8-18 a positive alternative to drugs and gangs.
The Central Arizona Mountain Rescue Association and the Youth Assistance Foundation are just two of the many charitable causes supported by Fulton Homes, the Tempe-based homebuilder that has built a legacy upon community activism. Fulton Homes generously contributes over to Arizona communities, schools, and children.
“Fulton Homes recognizes the importance of building not only great homes for a community, but strengthening and supporting the community that lives in those homes, as well,” said Fulton Homes CEO Douglas Fulton. “Fulton Homes is proud of our D-Backs, and now we have even more reason to cheer on our team—every home run can now help someone in need here in the Valley of the Sun.”
Fulton Homes was founded in 1975 and grew to be one of the top homebuilders and family owned businesses in Arizona. During the past year, in the face of one of the worst housing markets in US history, Fulton Homes soldiered on in a market devastated by foreclosures and short sales. Fulton Homes, which offers many homes in the $116,500- $140,000 range, was the first homebuilder to highlight the downside of foreclosures in an informational advertising campaign.
