Bennion Deville Homes La Quinta Office Oasis Elementary School Visit Sandy Beakey with Students
Bennion Deville Homes La Quinta agents and staff visit with the students at Oasis Elementary School for the last time of the 2018-19 school year.

The La Quinta office of Bennion Deville Homes, located at 47-250 Washington Street, recently visited the 4th grade classes at Oasis Elementary School in Thermal for the last trip of the school year. Managing Brokers Sandy Beakey and George Baca, along with staff member Scott Woodard, agent Roger Sullivan, and Ivy Scott of Franklin Loan Center, spent the morning with the kids to celebrate the end of class and send everyone off for summer in style. Agents and staff from the office visit the students two other times throughout the year, at back-to-school to give out school supplies and during the holidays to hand out presents.

“As it is each year, our final trip of the school year to Oasis Elementary School was a great time,” says Sandy Beakey, Managing Broker. “The students were all very excited to celebrate the end of the school year with us. It was nice to say ‘goodbye’ to them and get them prepped for their final trip before they adjourn for summer break.” Members of Bennion Deville Homes La Quinta office brought the children books for summer reading as well as toys and healthy snacks and drinks. “This visit is always special because the gifts we bring them are greatly appreciated. It is also nice to know that we are encouraging the kids to read as a part of their summer activities and continue their education independently while they are out of school,” adds George Baca, Managing Broker.

Bennion Deville Homes began working with Oasis Elementary School 4th graders after learning that only one of the four classes was receiving support from an outside entity. Agents and staff began visiting three 4th grade classes and the special needs children three times a year with the items given to each student varying based on the season. The bond between the students and Bennion Deville Homes remains strong throughout the years, with the kids referring to them as their “Fairy Godmothers and Godfathers.”

When Bennion Deville Homes first began working with Oasis Elementary School, the school was on a dirt road with no heating or air conditioning and with minimal access to resources. Now the school continues to grow, including a music room and program for the children to enjoy. Bennion Deville Homes agents helped to kick-start the program by donating a piano, violin, drumsticks, and a drum set. “We love coming to the school and interacting with the kids. It is a very moving experience to know that we are making such a big impact in their lives. Our partnership is special, and we look forward to continuing to visit for years to come,” Sandy concludes.

“We strive to partner with and give back to members of our community who may need a little bit of help throughout the year,” adds Bob Deville, Co-Owner of Bennion Deville Homes. “We are extremely impressed with the longstanding relationship the agents and staff at our La Quinta office have built with Oasis Elementary School and the families of the surrounding community. To know our efforts are improving the lives of so many kids and their families is a tremendous feeling and a great accomplishment that makes us proud of everyone involved. We would like to congratulate Sandy, George, and the La Quinta offices on their successful support of the 4th graders at the school. We wish them well in their efforts to keep such a precious relationship going for years to come.”
