Local Builders Join Habitat for Humanity South Palm Beach County in National House Build

Second national building industry blitz joins 1,000 building professionals to help Habitat partner families

DELRAY BEACH, FL - April 25, 2008 - Local professional builders and other industry professionals are joining Habitat for Humanity South Palm Beach County (SPBC) to raise the roof on two homes in Delray Beach as part of the Habitat for Humanity "Home Builders Blitz" 2008 taking place May 31 to June 7. Habitat SPBC is among 110 Habitat affiliates participating in building hundreds of homes in one week.

The Home Builders Blitz 2008 is the second Habitat project of its kind in the United States and gives many low-income families the opportunity to own their own home. Habitat for Humanity International estimates that more than 250 homes will be completed from start to finish throughout 34 states across the country.

"Partnering with professional homebuilders allows Habitat affiliates to increase the number of homes they build, while builders can help their community by doing what they do best," said Kevin Campbell, Director of the national Home Builders Blitz program for Habitat for Humanity.

Locally, K. Hovnanian Homes of Boynton Beach and Current Builders of Pompano Beach gathered subcontractors and suppliers to obtain materials and professional labor for the project.

"Thanks to K. Hovnanian Homes and Current Builders sponsorship of this event, two local families will realize the dream of homeownership," said Mike Campbell, Executive Director of Habitat SPBC. "We are so grateful these homebuilders are working to make our community a better place."

Other local sponsors include P&H Interiors of Coral Springs who will be donating the interior and exterior design work for the two homes. Current Builders is joined by the following companies, who donated time and/or material: Jones Lumber, Dade Truss, Gillette Construction, Bob Allen Masonry, G Drywall, Crowther Roofing, Lawson Windows, Ridgeway Plumbing, Dual Aire, Power Design Electric, American Gale Insulation, Best Rolling Door, Professional Plastering Stucco, Associated Steel & Aluminum, Exclusive Millwork, Indian River Cabinets, Bay to Bay Painting, Whirlpool Appliances, ET Flooring, Top Branch Landscaping and Aquamatic Sprinklers.
