The National Housing Endowment, the philanthropic arm of NAHB, will be recognizing the charitable contributions and altruistic differences building professionals make in their communities during awards ceremonies at the 2008 International Builders’ Show in Orlando next month.
Every year, housing professionals perform countless philanthropic projects, both as individuals and as part of their local or state associations.
Since 2005, NAHB has honored their generosity through the National Housing Endowment Builder Achievement Award for Outstanding Community Service.
“Every year, in towns and cities both large and small, housing professionals are doing what they do best — building,” said Gary Garczynski, endowment chairman and 2002 NAHB president. “But it’s not just houses and neighborhood developments that these professionals are constructing. They’re building communities, and these awards allow us to recognize the great contributions are members are making every day in their neighborhoods in which they live and work.”
The award recognizes NAHB builders, developers and remodelers for their exceptional philanthropic endeavors. This year, eight winners will be recognized.
The awards ceremony will be held at:
3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13
News Conference Room, West 203 A
Orange County Convention Center
