The Moore County Home Builders Association will contribute $1,200 raised during the MCHBA Spring Home & Garden Expo in March to two community organizations.
MCHBA raffled off a wine cooler stocked with more than two dozen bottles of fine wine during the Expo. More than 240 tickets were purchased by attendees for the raffle.
MCHBA will contribute half the amount to Adult & Teen Challenge, a long-term, residential, faith-based addiction treatment and rehabilitation center for men located in Carthage.
“Drug addiction is a serious problem in Moore County and the construction industry,” said MCHBA vice president Guy McGraw. “Helping even one person get the help they need makes Moore County a better community.”
The second half will be contributed to Patriot Hunts, a Fayetteville-based organization that provides outdoor experiences and therapy across the country to Wounded Warriors and Gold Star children of fallen heroes.
“We can never do enough for those who sacrifice to defend our freedoms,” said MCHBA president Jon Potter. “These soldiers and these kids deserve everything we can do to make their lives better.”
The contribution for Patriot Hunts will be presented at their Night of Honor banquet May 13 in Fayetteville. Adult & Teen Challenge will receive their contribution at the May 8 MCHBA General Membership Meeting in Aberdeen.
The Moore County Home Builders Association (MCHBA) is a 220-member trade association representing the local residential building industry. It provides a powerful voice to government, an economic engine for business and a charitable hand to the community.
