HomeAid Project Playhouse arrives at Minute Maid June 18

June 10, 2018

HomeAid Houston’s 12th annual Project Playhouse is scheduled to be on display at Minute Maid Park on June 18. HomeAid has partnered with home builder Ashton Woods who designed and constructed the playhouse, the Houston Astros and the Astros Foundation.

The playhouse design appeals to kids from ages 5 to 95. Project Playhouse is a HomeAid fundraiser that raises money for the agency’s mission, “to build new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing a community outreach”. HomeAid is a 501(c)(3) charity of the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA).

The Ashton Woods team named the playhouse the School House of Inspiration. The design captures the charm and classic look of schools from earlier times that helped build memories for generations. It includes a school bell, a built-on “swing set,” operable windows, air conditioning, a flat-screen TV and DVD combo, a chalkboard and interior furnishings that inspire children of all ages to hang out and play for hours.

Included in the list of Playhouse sponsors are Hall of Fame: Champion Energy Company, RoofTec and Toll Brothers and the Grand Slam sponsors are: Absolute Drywall Service, APEX Foundation, Friendswood Development Company, James Hardie Building Products, Towne Lake and VARC Solution.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this fundraiser for HomeAid Houston,” said Paul Sims, division president of Ashton Woods. “It gives us a unique opportunity to combine our love for design and home building with an opportunity to give back. Our team jumped at the opportunity to donate our time and skills to those who need it most. Our hope is that the School House of Inspiration by Ashton Woods lives up to its name and inspires everyone who works on it, sees it, and plays in it to believe in themselves and believe in the power of helping others.”
