NEFBA celebrates the holiday with charitable activities

Members of the Northeast Florida Builders Association (NEFBA) and its Sales and Marketing Council (SMC) showed their generous giving spirit by taking part in charitable activities to benefit local children during the holiday season.

The 7th annual SMC holiday auction, held during the monthly NEFBA/SMC breakfast program, featured auctioneer Bill Elrod auctioning a wide range of items contributed by members. A portion of the auction proceeds will benefit the children and youth at Daniel, a multi-service agency that assists children, adolescents and families.

During the event, individual members and companies dropped off gifts for Daniel’s Christmas Wish List Collection so that every child has gifts to open this holiday. Guests attending the event also donated teddy bears to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

“Community service has always been fundamental to NEFBA’s mission,” said Michael Bourré, 2011 president of NEFBA and president of Bourré Construction Group. “During the holiday season, it is especially important to remember the needs of children. It has been inspiring to see the philanthropic outreach and support demonstrated by our kindhearted members.”
