St. Louis Member Recruitment Drive Helps Armed Forces
In a membership drive last summer and fall, the Home Builders Association of Greater St. Louis raised funds on behalf of members of the U.S. Armed Forces traveling through their area.
Members of the association pledged to make financial donations for each new member that was recruited during the campaign. The drive yielded 45 new members and a $2,200 donation to the local USO, which serves military personnel and their families as they travel through the Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.
The USO provides free food, access to computers and television and additional services in a home-like environment.
The St. Louis association also stays involved with the community through its Home Builders Charitable Foundation. The foundation has donated $324,000 to shelter-related charities since it was established in 1997.
