NEFBA hosts food drive and auction

  The Northeast Florida Builders Association (NEFBA) is participating in several holiday activities to support local charitable organizations. The NEFBA Sales and Marketing Council (SMC) sponsored a holiday auction to raise funds to provide gifts for local children and youth through daniel, and the NEFBA Clay Builder’s Council is hosting its annual holiday basket giveaway to support the Green Cove Springs Food Pantry.  

“Community service has always been central to NEFBA’s mission,” said Andy Chambers, president of NEFBA. “During the holidays, it is particularly important to focus on the needs of children and families. The work being done through our individual councils to support the local community this year is truly outstanding.”

During the Dec. 10 monthly NEFBA SMC breakfast program at the UNF University Center, a holiday auction was held with items donated by members of SMC. Proceeds from the auction will be donated to daniel for the purchase of gifts for children and youth the organization serves. daniel is a nonprofit organization that has met the physical and emotional needs of children for more than 100 years.

The NEFBA Clay Builder’s Council recently held its annual Charity Golf Tournament. Each year, proceeds from the tournament are used to purchase food items for holiday gift baskets to support the Green Cove Food Pantry, which provides food to deserving families in Clay County. This year, food will be purchased from Winn-Dixie and Builder’s First Source will transport the items to St. Mary’s Episcopal Church.  Members of the NEFBA Clay Builder’s Council will create holiday food baskets for families who have been invited to participate in the giveaway by the Green Cove Springs Food Pantry. The preparation and giveaway will take place on Dec. 17 and 18.
