On Thursday afternoon, Lee BIA Builders Care received an early Christmas present from Santa’s elves.  The Aubuchon Team of Companies, led by Gary Aubuchon and Jeff Miloff, presented the group with a donation of $12,000.00 to help with emergency construction repairs for local homeowners in need.  Amongst hugs and company VIPs, the Aubuchon Team of Companies presented the check to Christi Pritchett Sarlo, Executive Director of Builders Care.


“We continue to be impressed with the services provided by Builders Care and their partners in the building industry, said Gary Aubuchon.  “And we are excited to be a part of the team to help more families in our area.”
