Donation will help local organization continue to provide emergency construction repairs to those in need
Lee BIA Builders Care, the charitable arm of the Lee Building Industry Association (BIA), recently received $12,500 from Aubuchon Team of Companies to support its mission to provide emergency construction repairs for local homeowners in need. Aubuchon Team of Companies, a company compromised of several entities to aid in the process of homebuying and homebuilding, raised the funds through its annual “Helping Hands for the Holidays” fundraiser, raising $37,500 to benefit Lee BIA Builders Care and two additional charitable organizations: Make-A-Wish Southern Florida and Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Each year, Aubuchon Team of Companies hosts its “Helping Hands for the Holidays” fundraiser to raise funds in support of local charitable organizations. Through its annual fundraiser, Aubuchon Team of Company has donated more than $104,000 to Lee BIA Builders Care in the last 10 years, helping the program to provide home repair services to disadvantaged Lee County residents free-of-charge.
“We are very appreciative of the continued support from Aubuchon Team of Companies and their contributors during their annual ‘Helping Hands during the Holidays’ fundraiser,” said Christi Pritchett, executive director of Lee BIA Builders Care. “Over the past 10 years, this company has provided Lee BIA Builders Care with important funding that furthers our mission to provide emergency home repairs to elderly and disabled homeowners in our community, and for that we are extremely thankful.”
