Lee BIA Builders Care, the nonprofit charitable arm of the Lee Building Industry Association (BIA), has received a $12,000 donation from Aubuchon Team of Companies in support of its mission to provide emergency construction services at no cost to needy and deserving elderly and/or disabled homeowners, and their families, who cannot obtain repairs through traditional means.
The impactful donation is a result of funds raised through Aubuchon Team of Companies’ annual “Helping Hands for the Holidays” event. To date, Aubuchon Team of Companies has donated more than $116,000 to Lee BIA Builders Care through this annual fundraiser, fueling Lee BIA Builder Care’s efforts to make a difference within the lives of local homeowners and families.
“Aubuchon Team of Companies’ annual event has generously supported Lee BIA Builders Care for 11 years, an invaluable commitment that has provided critical funding and support, helping us to continually strengthen our impact within the community,” said Becky Swift, executive director of Lee BIA Builders Care. “We are grateful for Aubuchon’s continued partnership as we work together to provide life-changing services to homeowners in need.”
