Cape Coral Leadership 2021 and Builders Care Team Up


Cape Coral Leadership 2021 and Builders Care

– Lee BIA Builders Care and community partners came together last November to surprise a North Fort Myers homeowner – who had gone over a decade without central air and heating – with the gift of a new air conditioning system. In august 2021 we visited his home again…..



Jon Smith is an elderly and disabled homeowner who has lived alone in his Cape Coral home for over 15 years. In 2005, he suffered a severe head and leg injury, leaving him in a coma for 3 months in Lee Memorial Hospital. He was then transferred to a Rehabilitation Center until he was finally discharge after 4 months. Mr. Smith now lives in his home under the care of his Lee Home Health Nurse.

Lee BIA Builders Care along with the Cape Coral Chamber’s Leadership of 2021 joined together last week to give Jon one more surprise.  It started with trimming trees, pulling weeds, planting flowers, and laying mulch. The neighbors even joined in to help with mowing the lawn and painting new house numbers.  To top it off a pair of outdoor chairs and a table. A nice place for him to sit outside and enjoy the cool fall weather with his nurse. It was a great day for landscaping and the leadership class was amazing to work with. A BIG THANK YOU to the Cape Coral Leadership Class of 2021 for volunteering their time with Builders Care to landscape Jon Smith’s yard.


Team work! 

Home Sweet Home…
