As part of Habitat for Humanity’s Home Builders Blitz 2017, professional homebuilders and suppliers will provide the labor, funding and materials to help more than 200 families across the U.S. build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. “Habitat for Humanity’s Home Builders Blitz is truly a testament to the willingness of local builders to invest in their communities,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. “Since 2002, professional builders have partnered with families to create positive ripple effects in neighborhoods and make everyday moments more meaningful. We are so grateful for their support.”
In Bradley County, Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland and professional homebuilders will help the Vaughn family build a place they can call home. Construction on the home began in June and will be completed by the end of the year.
“The Builders Blitz gives vendors and subcontractors the opportunity to give back to the affiliate and to Habitat families,” said Tyler Bramlett, Construction Director. “It’s a great opportunity to address the growing need for decent and affordable housing in Bradley County, and to bring awareness to the community of the opportunities to volunteer with Habitat. There are still opportunities for builders to donate materials and labor for the home.”
The event is supported nationwide by presenting sponsor Ply Gem, with additional support from Martin Marietta, The blue Book Building and Construction Network, Huber Engineered Woods, Masco Corp., Columbia Forest Products and Gildan. Local support is provided by Tindell’s Building Materials, Cleveland Plywood Co., Whirlpool, DOW, Schneider Electric, Valspar, Yale, Pyramid Construction, Rick’s Plumbing, Hecker Electric, Kidd Insulation, Springdale Heating and Air, Herb’s Yard Barns and Swafford Nursery.
