On behalf of the Home Builders Charitable Foundation (HBCF), 2017 HBA President Ken Kruse of Payne Family Homes (left) and HBCF President John Eilermann of McBride & Son Companies (right) presented a $10,000 donation to Dave Ervin, executive director of Rebuilding Together-St. Louis (second from left), and Mark Jansen, Rebuilding Together Board Member.
The donation will be used toward Rebuilding Together-St. Louis’ Rebuilding Day program. Rebuilding Together revitalizes neighborhoods in partnership with the community by rehabilitating the houses of low-income home owners, particularly the elderly and the disabled, so that they may continue to live independently in comfort and safety. Rebuilding Day is the organization’s annual one-day blitz where volunteers make home repairs for low-income, elderly and disabled home owners in the St. Louis Metro area.
The HBA is a local trade association of more than 600 member firms representing the residential construction industry. The Home Builders Charitable Foundation, the HBA’s charitable arm, is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing housing assistance to people or organizations with special shelter needs.
