Thirteen Local Rebuilding Together/Christmas in April Programs Receive Support from Home Builders Foundation
(March 16, 2016 - Fulton, MD) - The Home Builders Care Foundation, the 501 (c) (3) official foundation of the Maryland Building Industry Association is pleased to announce that it has helped sponsor the efforts of 13 chapters of Rebuilding Together/ Christmas in April programs throughout Maryland and the District of Columbia. The HBCF has made a financial contribution to each chapter and also stepped up with additional in-kind support and has adopted its own RT home rehabilitation project near its headquarters in Howard County. The project, for an elderly couple, has numerous needs including a new roof, kitchen and extensive electrical and plumbing work.
Barbara Cupp, Executive Director of Rebuilding Together Anne Arundel County, Inc. said, "This gift will go towards supporting our mission and completing more projects for neighbors in need." Anne Arundel is one of the territories covered by MBIA and HBCF in addition to the Baltimore, Calvert, Carroll, Cecil, Charles, Harford, Howard, Montgomery, Prince George's and St. Mary's as well as Baltimore City, the Eastern Shore and Washington DC. Within this service area, there are 13 active Rebuilding Together or Christmas in April chapters. Together, these chapters repair hundreds of homes owned by low-income, elderly and disabled individuals and families and HBCF is proud to support the efforts of each chapter. "We are thrilled to continue to support these chapters as their hard works perfectly fits with our mission of providing shelter-related construction for those at risk in our communities," said Christopher Rachuba, chairperson of the HBCF.
With help from HBCF and other financial and in-kind donors, local RT/CinA chapters are able to rehabilitate the homes of low-income homeowners, particularly the elderly and disabled repair, who are unable to maintain their homes on their own. For the past 20 years, the Home Builders Care Foundation has fulfilled an annual commitment to assist in all RT and CinA programs throughout its service area.
The Home Builders Care Foundation serves 85 percent of the state of Maryland as well as Washington D.C. with a mission to give back by utilizing the skills and resources of building industry members on shelter-related construction for the homeless and others at-risk. Find out more at: www.hbcf.org.
