Built With Health Care
Giving Back to Atrium
During the months of April, May, and June, a portion of the proceeds of every home that Eastwood Homes closes in the Charlotte area will be donated to Atrium Health’s COVID-19 relief efforts.
For over 40 years, Eastwood Homes has been driven to "build with care" each and every day. We care about our staff, our neighbors, and our community, but more than ever we find it in our hearts to care about our country’s healthcare workers. These medical professionals that work day in and day are selflessly compassionate for others during this pandemic.
Eastwood pledges to support these vital workers through our connection with Atrium Health and Levine Children’s hospital by making a donation for each home closed between April and June.
Levine Children's Hospital
Philanthropic Partnership Since 2008
Eastwood Homes formed a philanthropic partnership with Carolinas HealthCare System and Levine Children’s Hospital in January 2008, reinforcing its long-standing commitment to growth in the Carolinas. There are two primary components to the partnership.
A portion of the proceeds from each and every Charlotte-area sale is donated to the hospital. When an employee of the Carolinas HealthCare System purchases an Eastwood Home, an additional $500 donation is made in their honor as well. The second major component of the partnership is the Eastwood Homes Hospitality Cart, which was introduced to Levine in the fall of 2008. The cart circulates the 8 floors and family waiting areas of Levine Children’s Hospital and provides healthy snacks, reading materials, gifts, and toiletries at no charge to the children or families of the children that are staying in the hospital.
Eastwood Classic Charity Golf Tournament
Further Strengthening Our Commitment to Levine Children's Hospital
In 2013, Eastwood Homes hosted its first Charity Golf Outing, further strengthening its commitment to the Levine Children's Hospital. Following this event, Eastwood has made a tradition to host a golf tournament annually. The company coordinated its 5th tournament on September 25, 2017, and raised a record of $75,000. During these very successful golf outings, not only did the company raise more than $200,000 for the Seacrest Studios, an in-house multimedia broadcast center at Levine, but everyone had a great time supporting a worthy cause!
Cruising Levine Children’s Hospital
The Hospitality Cart at Levine Children's Hospital has been providing necessities to families since 2008 with donations from Eastwood Homes and its team members. Many times, children are taken unexpectedly to Levine Children's, and their parents do not have the toiletries, snacks, and items they need for a stay at the hospital. The cart helps provide the comforts of home to them and their children.
Bringing Happiness to Levine Children's Hospital
Seacrest Studios is a 652 square foot studio with a full-time program director and hosts game shows, celebrity interviews, and performances for all the patients to enjoy! Children at Levine can stop by the studio, or watch from their room, and request songs or ask questions to celebrity guests. Since the opening of the studio, patients have been entertained with interviews with Selena Gomez, Imagine Dragons, Rachel Platten, Michael Buble, and Carolina Panthers quarterback, Cam Newton!
During check presentations, Eastwood employees have joined the fun in the studios. In their most recent visit, the team was tested on their knowledge of home designs and were asked to identify architectural styles by looking at a photo. Afterward, to show their holiday spirit, the team listened to Christmas songs and were asked to finished the lyrics, by singing on air! Even though they were not prepared to sing, the Eastwood team was happy to spend the afternoon entertaining the children at Levine. Eastwood Homes is proud to support the Seacrest Studios and hope to continue to do so and bring happiness to all the patients at Levine Children's Hospital!
