HomeAid Houston is working with David Weekley Homes and BMC for their leadership in organizing the local efforts #builderscare.
With the help of the Leading Builders of America and the Greater Houston Builders Association members, over 3,000 masks and 1500 eye protection units have been donated locally to-date. Nationally over 150,000 units that include both masks and eye protection have been collected.
The supplies were donated to Kaiser Permanente in Richmond / Rosenberg with others going to a clinic in the Fort Bend area that is working with non-insured individuals. Derek Holtman from David Weekley is helping to coordinate the drop off which is located at BMC Millwork at 16002 Tomball Pkwy, Houston 77080 – Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Materials being collected are masks that can include dust and N95, although N95 masks are preferred because of their ability to significantly block particles like coronaviruses, eye protection such as glasses, goggles, shields, etc., surgical gloves and anything else useful as PPE.
“It is imperative that our healthcare providers have these masks as they are on the front line of the battle to test, treat, and contain COVID-19,” said Carole Brady, executive director of HomeAid Houston. “HomeAid Houston is grateful to the Leading Builders of America and GHBA members for their quick response to this call to action. These donations are a reflection of the industry’s deep commitment to our community and to those who serve us.”
