The Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) recognized CHBA – Calgary Region with a community service award for their efforts during the 2013 flood.
The award is meant to recognize outstanding contributions made by local and provincial home builders’ associations to the betterment of the way of life for the people in their community.
“I am so proud of my fellow CHBA – Calgary Region members for stepping up to help the many homeowners that were devastated by the flood in June last year,” said Doug Whitney, president of CHBA – Calgary Region.
“We all worked hard to build this city, and it was only natural to dedicate man power, equipment and our expertise to help rebuild effected communities.”
Members of CHBA – Calgary Region were eager to assist people returning to their flood devastated homes with manpower, expertise, tools, equipment, supplies, food and money.
Over $1.6 million was donated to various flood relief programs. The office was turned into a hub, making information available for the general public and assisting the City of Calgary with labourers and equipment.
The CHBA – Calgary Region helped provide assistance and resources to homeowners as well as assisting their own members who were displaced from their offices, by providing boardrooms to use in the interim.
