HBA members and companies from around the state have raised more than $112,000 to support members and neighbors across the state that were victims of the recent flood. The monies raised and spent are being sent to the Building Industry Charitable Foundation, Inc. affiliated with the Building Industry Association of Central South Carolina.
The Building Industry Charitable Foundation, is a South Carolina nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization located at 625 Taylor Street, Columbia, SC. As a result of the most recent flood disaster, the BIA Charitable Foundation is receiving donations to be distributed to charities/organizations, throughout the state, that they feel are best suited to help those most in most need of assistance. To date the Foundation has donated $35,000. Those monies have gone to the Flood Relief Fund for the United Way of Sumter Clarendon and Lee Counties and Home Works of America for the December Flood Repair Session.
The Building Industry Charitable Foundation’s original goal was to raise $100,000.00, which our members met in record time. HBA members have been very generous (please see list of many of the donors below) and every dollar raised will go directly to the relief efforts, but more will be needed so the new goal is to raise $200,000. If you feel personally compelled to donate and/or would like to review more information visit their website.
Remember that all monies raised will go to assisting SC Flood victims with rebuilding their homes and communities. Please make checks payable to the Building Industry Charitable Foundation and mail to the Attention of Earl McLeod at 625 Taylor Street, Columbia, SC 29201.
