Builders Care honors volunteers with awards

Lee Builders Care

Each year, Builders Care, the nonprofit charitable arm of the Lee Building Industry Association (BIA), honors several building partners and volunteers in recognition of their service and commitment to Southwest Florida’s elderly and individuals with disabilities and their families.

Builders Care hit a milestone completing over $2 Million in construction services in November 2012 and celebrated it by recognizing their building partners and volunteers.

The 2012 Volunteer of the Year was awarded to Builders Care Board member, Jimmy Rodgers, of West Coast Structural Concrete & Masonry, for his outstanding volunteerism on the job sites with all projects including wheelchair ramps. The 2012 Sub-Contractor Partner of the Year was awarded to T&M Portable Restrooms for their on-going contributions on all construction sites and fundraising events. Ferguson Enterprises was recognized as Outstanding Partner of the year for their management of golf tournament and other fundraising efforts for Builders Care. Stock Development was honored with the prestigious Certified Builder Partner of the Year award for extraordinary efforts on behalf of Builders Care and the community through their annual partnership of donating $100 per home sale in their PASEO community and the recent completion of a new home for a Builders Care recipient valued at $175,000. President and Board member, Butch Ritter, president for Cape Coral Plumbing, received the most prestigious Hearts & Hammers Award for his continued leadership and commitment to Builders Care.

Builders Care Board members were also recognized for their commitment to the building industry, the community and the mission of Builders Care. “We are so blessed to have the hands on support of so many individuals and companies,” said Heidi Taulman, executive director, of Lee BIA Builders Care. “We simply could not do it without their continued support.”
