Through the years, BufordHawthorne has given back to the communities where we work and live. This not only allows us to express our appreciation for enabling us to enjoy years of successful homebuilding, but is also a way for BufordHawthorne to make a positive lasting impact by supporting important organizations that provide critical services for those in need. The following are a couple of the causes we support.
Each year, BufordHawthorne participates in Canstruction Dallas, a fun and competitive way to showcase our creativity and simultaneously help feed the hungry. Created and organized by the Society for Design Administration (SDA) and in partnership with American Institute of Architects, the competition challenges entrants to construct sculptures using canned food items that are later donated to area food banks. Canstruction generates donations, awareness, and tens of thousands of canned food items for Dallas’ hungry.
Dallas CASA Parade of Playhouses
The Parade of Playhouses is an annual fundraising event in which playhouses designed, built, and donated by local architects and builders are raffled off to the public during an exhibit at NorthPark Center. Funds raised go to support the work of Dallas CASA, an organization providing compassionate court-appointed advocates for abused and neglected children. Through participation in this event, BufordHawthorne supports Dallas CASA in their efforts to protect Dallas-area children and place them in safe, loving homes as quickly as possible. These are a few of the playhouses we have helped to create:

In October of 2014, BufordHawthorne donated their time and talents to MOVE Missions (Ministry of Orthopaedic Volunteers and Education), a Christian organization that provides medical care and education to needy people in the Dominican Republic. Working with architect, Bob Borson and MOVE Missions director and president, Dr. John Barrington, BufordHawthorne helped add a third floor to the mission’s existing elementary school building. After visiting the site to obtain measurements and assess the project, drawings were provided in order for bids to be obtained. Once construction began, Barry Hawthorne visited the site to oversee the progress and brought along a team of 15 workers to assist the local construction team. The school expansion created more classrooms for the over 500 children who attend there.
