Lee BIA Builders Care, the nonprofit charitable arm of the Lee Building Industry Association (BIA), has received a $17,000 donation from Aubuchon Team of Companies. The impactful donation is a result of funds raised through Aubuchon Team of Companies’ annual fundraising event, “Helping Hands for the Holidays.”
