LOCAL HOME BUILDERS ASSOCIATION BUILD SANDWICHES FOR A CAUSE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TAMPA, FLA. (December 13, 2016) – The Tampa Bay Builders Association (TBBA) is spreading good cheer AND peanut butter on December 21, 2016 for a good cause. The organization’s Sales and Marketing Council (SMC) has set a holiday challenge to build 1000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at the association’s downtown headquarters, 512 East Kennedy Blvd. Members of the trade organization will volunteer in shifts on December 21st to assemble the sandwiches to support the non-profit GRAB Tomorrow – PB&J for Tampa Bay.
GRAB Tomorrow has set out to provide 25,000 PB&J to the local community based on their belief, “Life is unpredictable and at any moment the tragedy of an unforeseen circumstance or disaster could leave even the most stable person in a similar situation. Everyone deserves to eat.” Local companies and community groups have assembled throughout the year to collectively assist GRAB Tomorrow to meet their target.
The TBBA’s Sales and Marketing Council (SMC) was awarded the Gold Award, the highest recognition given by the National Association of Home Builders, earlier this year in part for the charity work they have provided back to the community to which they build homes.
“When the Tampa Bay area has an ongoing concern with resources for the homeless population it only seemed like a natural fit for the association to step forward and provide support at the most elementary level. We are proud to host this program and encourage other organizations to do what they can not only during the holiday season, but throughout the year.” Jennifer Doerfel, TBBA Executive Vice President
