On Thursday, February 16th, the LCEC transportation department along with CEO Dennie Hamilton presented Lee BIA Builders Care with a donated 2006 Ford Ranger pickup truck. The truck was rotated out of the LCEC service fleet after 10 years of use. The refurbished truck will be used by Builders Care staff and volunteers to assist with serving elderly and disabled clients with emergency home repairs at no cost.
“Rarely does LCEC have the opportunity to do something like this, but when we did, we thought of Builders Care.” said Dennie Hamilton, CEO of LCEC.
“This truck will allow us to better serve our neighbors in need with critical home repairs,” said Christi Pritchett Sarlo, Executive Director of Builders Care. “We appreciate the generosity of LCEC for this and the many other ways they give back to the community.”
Special thanks to the LCEC Transportation Department for making the used truck look great again!
