Hurricane Harvey Relief Donations from the CRBA

CRBF Donates $27,225 To HBA of SE Texas

On Tuesday September 19th, the Capital Region Builders Foundation donated over $27,225 in donated funds and supplies to the Home Builder's Association of Southeast Texas!

Almost immediately after Hurricane Harvey decimated many residents of southeast Texas in August, the Capital Region Builders Association and Capital Region Builders Foundation began collecting supplies and monetary donations for those severely affected in our neighboring state. After the 2016 floods that hit the Greater Baton Rouge area, many HBAs (including SE Texas) sprang into action with timely relief funds for our members, so this we took this opportunity to pay it forward!

The CRBA and CRBF would like to thank everyone who donated funds and supplies for such a worthy cause! Pictured above are CRBA staff members Chere Noto & Krystalin Schexnayder, along with the CRBF board members Rusty Golden, Tim Kinchen, Willie Martin, Dwayne Gafford, Craig Toups, and new Executive Vice President, Karen Zito, ready to send the funds and supplies to Texas.
