Richmond Hill, GA – In a touching display of community and gratitude, Heartwood joined hands with PulteGroup to celebrate the dedication of a new home to a deserving Wounded Warrior. The event highlighted the community’s ongoing support for our nation’s heroes and showcased the collaborative spirit that makes Richmond Hill such a remarkable place to live.

Army Sergeant Keysia Calmese, the honored recipient, was welcomed into her new mortgage-free home last Friday, just a day before Veteran’s Day, amidst a patriotic parade of community members, local leaders, family, and new neighbors and friends. For a decade, PulteGroup’s Pulte Cares Program has been committed to thanking our nation’s veterans by doing what they do best: building homes and communities to make lives better. This home marks the 81st build of its kind, showcasing their enduring dedication to giving back to those who have served our country.

Richmond Hill: A Community That Cares

“Heartwood’s participation in this project is more than just a contribution; it’s a reflection of the values that define our area. Richmond Hill is a special place. Welcoming Sgt. Calmese and her beautiful daughter to this community will be one of those memories we will cherish forever,” says Bill Cunningham, VP of Real Estate at Raydient. “As a developer, watching the intentions you set forth to create “community” unfold and take shape is something you don’t take for granted. We are so honored to have been a part of this opportunity with PulteGroup.”
