Fresno-based AMOR is one of the three nonprofit beneficiaries of the Granville Homes Central Valley COVID-19 Relief Initiative, and it was tasked with identifying medical organizations in need of supplies and obtaining that equipment for them.

Granville Homes Supports Nonprofits During Pandemic

Granville Homes is donating $5,000 for every home sale that closes through May 31. New homeowners can designate which nonprofit they want to support. To date, more than $110,000 has been donated.

The other two nonprofit recipients are the Central California Blood Bank and the Marjaree Mason Center.

“The Granville Homes Central Valley COVID-19 Relief Initiative is our way of supporting some of the amazing nonprofits who are bringing hope to our neighbors in need,” said Granville Homes President and CEO  Darius Assemi, who is also the publisher of GV Wire.
