On behalf of the Home Builders Charitable Foundation (HBCF), 2016 HBA President Kim Hibbs of Hibbs Homes (left) presented a $15,000 donation to Jean Huelsing, founder and CEO of Living Well Foundation (Camp Jump Start).
The donation will be used to install gutter guards on the camp’s 26 on-site buildings. Living Well Village is a 250-acre modern camp for a day, weekend, week or longer that teaches people of all ages how to lead healthy, happy, productive lives and avoid or reverse preventable illness like obesity, diabetes, heart disease or cancer. The gutter guards will decrease the manpower in gutter cleaning throughout the mostly forested camp. The mission of Living Well Village is to create healthier individuals and families through experiential learning across the life cycle. Living Well Village is also a licensed American Red Cross facility and will house incoming residents if there is a disaster.
The HBA is a local trade association of nearly 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.
