Pittsford, NY Hundreds gathered recently at Burgundy Basin on Marsh Rd. to celebrate the hard work and passion exemplified by the volunteers and supporters of Flower City Habitat for Humanity in 2016-2017. Among the special service awards and anniversaries honored throughout the night, was the Community Builder Award given to TAYLOR – The Builders for their efforts regarding Rochester’s first Habitat for Humanity Blitz Build.
“It was an unexpected honor to receive this year’s Community Builder Award from the Flower City Habitat,” said TAYLOR CEO, Jim Taylor.
“True admirations should be reserved for the numerous donors, subcontractors, and volunteers who helped make the Blitz Build vision a reality, building the foundation for a better life of local families in need.”
In June of 2016, TAYLOR – The Builders and local construction experts joined Flower City Habitat for Humanity in helping area families by building a home in a WEEK as part of their annual Home Builders Blitz. During the event, nearly 250 families in 31 states built strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with professional builders. Across the country, Habitat for Humanity recruits and partners with local professional builders who provide labor, funding and materials, giving local organizations the ability to work with more families without the usual tasks of raising funds and recruiting volunteers.
