The Niagara Home Builders’ Association hosted their annual Christmas celebration and elimination draw in December at the Holiday Inn Convention Centre in St. Catharines.
For over 11 years, the NHBA has partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Niagara to raise donations for the youth they provide support services to on a daily basis.
This year saw a record number of donations from members, which included new, unwrapped gifts for youth ages 6-18 years old.
“We are honoured to continue to assist Big Brothers, Big Sisters year after year through the generosity of our member companies”, said NHBA President Richard Lawrence. “This agency is a staple of our community, and we applaud their positive contributions throughout the Niagara Region.”
Toys, books, games and gift cards were delivered to the BBBS St. Catharines office on Wednesday morning, where staff members accepted the donations.
The Mission Statement of the BBBS is to enable life-changing mentoring relationships to ignite the power and potential of young people.
The NHBA is proud to support an organization which provides such a positive impact for the children and youth of our community.
