Those who watched the Houston Texans’ first home game of the season or caught the highlights on the news saw JJ Watt burst onto the field carrying the Texas flag, to the raucous cheers of more than 71,000 fans. Watt became a national hero in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, spearheading a charity spree for those who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey. What was intended to be $100,000 in matched funds is now more than $31 million raised thanks to all those Watt was able to inspire. SouthStar Communities is among them, having donated $10,000 to the JJ Watts Houston Flood Relief Fund, it was announced by SouthStar Chief Operating Officer (COO) Thad Rutherford.
“Our hearts and minds are with the people of Houston and The Gulf, many of whom lost everything during the catastrophic Hurricane Harvey,” he said. “We have been so impressed by everyone’s generous responses to aid our neighbors and are focused here at SouthStar on helping the area heal. For anyone who is still looking for a way to help, Watt’s donation site can be reached here.”
SouthStar Communities has a long history of charitable work, most notably through their partnership with nonprofit Operation FINALLY HOME (OFH) to provide land and mortgage-free homes to wounded American heroes. SouthStar has so far provided 11 homesites free of charge to wounded military and their families throughout their masterplanned communities.
SouthStar Communities develops and manages masterplanned communities all over the Southeast. Current communities include:
This 3,300-acre masterplanned community is the fastest-growing community in the San Antonio area for the past four years. The community enjoys a top location right on the Texas Wine Trail between San Antonio and Austin and a variety of land and home offerings and resort-style amenities including multiple pools, a lazy river, sport courts and ball fields, and walking trails.
This 288-acre masterplanned community features new homes in the Hill Country with two single-family neighborhoods from Lennar offering modern floorplans and desirable features in a serene, view-oriented setting. The Crossings also includes community amenities including a swimming pool, grassy play areas, and walking trails.
Mission del Lago is the fastest-growing community in its price range, and one of the fastest-growing regardless of price range, in San Antonio.
