Hurricane Harvey Relief Donations from the CRBA

Donations Now Being Collected For Hurricane Recovery Efforts

The Capital Region Builders Association is now accepting donations to assist Texas and Louisiana residents affected by Hurricane Harvey.

You may remember that our neighbors in Texas and southwest Louisiana were huge part of our own relief efforts in 2016, so we are taking this opportunity to pay it forward! We are accepting monetary donations through the CRBA's VENMO account. VENMO s a free smartphone app that can also be accessed online. Once you are in the app search for Capital Region Builders Foundation. The donation is sent straight to our account with no fees; EVERY DOLLAR DONATED GOES DIRECTLY TO OUR RELIEF EFFORTS!

If you would like to donate physical items, you drop them off at the CRBA offices, 10518 Kentshire Court in Baton Rouge. Please refer to the list below for the items most needed, but any donation helps and is greatly appreciated!
