Lending a Helping Hand

2012 MCBF Rebuilding Team

The Building Industries Foundation
Keeping our Neighbors WARM, SAFE and DRY

Lending a Helping Hand – Building Industries Foundation
By: Allysha Jenkins

On Saturday April 28th, members of the Building Industries Foundation, Home Builders Association of Maryland, Rebuilding Together and several volunteers came together to make repairs to two aging and damaged homes for families in Elkridge, MD.
The morning began cool, gray and threatening rain but volunteers arrived early, eager to get started. Workers varied in background, profession and age, ranging from 15 to 78, but each came with a smile and a positive attitude, ready to work to help make a difference in the lives of families in need. Throughout the day neighbors and passers-by paused at the sight of contractors on the roof tarring and fixing gutters, students weeding and planting flowers and professionals hauling rotted wood and debris. As time passed the temperature dropped but the energy and positivity of the group never wavered as they worked toward the MBCF's goal of "Keeping Our Neighbors Warm, Safe and Dry."
With donated materials from HBAM members and sponsors and the time of volunteers, the group was able to make major improvements on each home which included extensive electrical work, flooring repair and replacement, roofing, carpentry and more. At the end of the day tired volunteers were greeted with the tearful thanks of the homeowners whose lives they changed. Several agreed that the gift of their sincere appreciation and gratefulness was well worth the time and effort expended that Saturday.

Building Industries Foundation
The Building Industries Foundation, founded in 1999, is the charitable arm of the Home Builders Association of Maryland. It was formed to promote shelter related activities for those less fortunate throughout the Baltimore region. The Foundation focuses on ‘sticks and bricks’ projects that provide shelter or shelter improvements for needy families in the six counties and city serviced by HBAM – Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Cecil, Harford, Howard and Baltimore City.

Our strategy is to provide shelter-related charitable services in the region by calling upon HBAM members for donations of labor, materials and funds. Examples of recent projects supported by the Foundation include The Arc of Baltimore, the Night of Peace Shelter, the Carroll County Hospice, the Grassroots Homeless Shelter in Howard County, St. Casmir and the Lighthouse Industries and Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
The Maryland Community Builders Foundation reaches out to our community to recognize the positive impact both individuals and organizations can make through philanthropy and volunteerism on their neighborhoods, towns and cities.
