Builders Association Donates $15,000 to Living Well Village
On behalf of the
Home Builders Charitable Foundation (HBCF), 2016 HBA President Kim Hibbs of
Hibbs Homes (left) presented a $15,000 donation to Jean Huelsing,
founder and CEO of Living Well Foundation (Camp Jump Start).
The donation will
be used to install gutter guards on the camp’s 26 on-site buildings. Living
Well Village is a 250-acre modern camp for a day, weekend, week or longer that
teaches people of all ages how to lead healthy, happy, productive lives and
avoid or reverse preventable illness like obesity, diabetes, heart disease or
cancer. The gutter guards will decrease the manpower in gutter cleaning
throughout the mostly forested camp. The mission of Living Well Village is to
create healthier individuals and families through experiential learning across
the life cycle. Living Well Village is also a licensed American Red Cross
facility and will house incoming residents if there is a disaster.
The HBA is a local
trade association of nearly 600 member firms representing the residential
construction industry. The Home Builders Charitable Foundation, the HBA’s
charitable arm, is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing housing
assistance to people or organizations with special shelter needs.
