Jacksonville Builders Help Safe Harbor Boys Home Stay on Course
In one local example of how the nation’s home builders contribute to their community throughout the year, the sales and marketing team at North Florida Builders, a Woodside Company in Jacksonville, recently purchased and delivered two pairs of leather work gloves, a dictionary and a thesaurus to each resident of the Safe Harbor Boys Home.
Safe Harbor’s waterfront facility provides a safe alternative home environment aboard former military vessels for 15- to 17-year-old boys who have had behavioral problems at home or at school. The boys learn seamanship skills and have access to instruction in carpentry, welding, boat maintenance and repair, gas and diesel engine repair and some basic electrical wiring.
“Safe harbor is a remarkable organization that truly helps at-risk teenage boys,” said Linda Mathis, a vice president of the custom home building company. “We enjoy supporting charities like this one and the opportunity to help make a difference in our community.”
