Nearly 250 families will build strength, stability and self-reliance with support from professional builders across the country
TAYLOR – The Builders and local construction experts will join Flower City Habitat for Humanity in helping area families by building a home in a week as part of Habitat for Humanity’s annual Home Builders Blitz.
During this year’s event, nearly 250 families in 31 states will build strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with professional builders.
Across the country, Habitat for Humanity recruits and partners with local professional builders who provide labor, funding and materials, giving local Habitat for Humanity organizations the ability to work with more families without the usual tasks of raising funds and recruiting volunteers.
“The professional builders who selflessly take time out of their busy and profitable construction schedules to participate in Habitat for Humanity’s Home Builders Blitz are true community heroes,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. “Since 2002, professional builders have partnered with Habitat across the country to build, repair or rehab more than 1,500 homes. We are grateful for their donation of time, funds and talent, which enables hundreds of Habitat homeowner families each year to build the foundation for a better life.”
Local subcontractors and suppliers building during Habitat’s Home Builders Blitz include TAYLOR – The Builders with: American Plumbing, APEX Painting, B&L Wholesale Supply, Caldwell Manufacturing, Kelley Construction, Douglas Electric, Henry Isaac, Image City, Imperial Flooring, and Rochester Lumber.
The event is supported nationwide by presenting sponsor PlyGem, with additional support from Panasonic Ventilation, MASCO Corporation, US LBM Foundation and Columbia Forest Products. Local support is provided by B&L Wholesale, Image City, Imperial Flooring, and Rochester Lumber.
“Flower City Habitat for Humanity continues to help transform the Rochester community by mobilizing volunteers, businesses, partnering with families, and encouraging local contributors to improve our neighborhoods,” said Taylor CEO, Jim Taylor. “We are proud to be part of this unique Blitz Build, and are grateful to the numerous donors in our community who help build these homes for local families in need.”
