Builders FirstSource Makes Significant Contributions To Non-Profit Organizations
The super dealer raised over a million dollars for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society while also donating to the American Red Cross and other charitable organizations.
In 2021, Builders FirstSource raised more than $1 million for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
The announcement comes on the heels of the nation’s largest LBM dealer’s pledge to donate more than $1 million to non-profit organizations focused on emergency relief, disaster relief, and serving veterans and their families.
Builders FirstSource’s contribution to LLS contributes to the organization’s mission of curing leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma and improving the quality of life for patients and their families. For the past 15 years, the Dallas-based company has been a proud supporter of LLS, raising over $5.6 million for the organization.
“We are so grateful for LLS’ efforts to cure blood cancer and the comfort the organization provides families during very challenging times, and are honored to support its cause,” Dave Flitman, Builders FirstSource President and CEO stated.
“Many of our own team members and their families have been impacted by blood cancer, and LLS is an organization that they and our industry partners and communities have championed over the years for the meaningful work it does.”
“We look forward to the day cancer stops disrupting families altogether and believe LLS will play an integral role in finding a cure.”
In addition to its collaboration with LLS, Builders FirstSource has pledged to donate more than $1 million to a number of charitable organizations. Below are some recipients:
American Red Cross, which shelters, feeds, and comforts disaster victims, distributes international humanitarian aid, and assists veterans, military members, and their families.
BFS Cares, the Company’s non-profit organization for assisting team members affected by natural disasters.
Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which helps first responders, veterans, and their families by providing mortgage-free homes to these heroes and the families they leave behind.
Camp Southern Ground, which supports veterans while also providing extraordinary camp experiences for children, particularly those with neurodevelopmental differences, military families, and underserved communities.
