Builders FirstSource donating big funds to non-profits
The super dealer raised more than $1 million for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society while donating to American Red Cross and other charitable organizations.
Builders FirstSource has raised more than $1 million for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) in 2021.
The announcement from the nation’s largest LBM dealer is in conjunction with its commitment to contribute more than $1 million to select non-profit organizations focused on emergency relief, disaster assistance, and serving veterans and their families.
Builders FirstSource’s contribution to LLS aids the organization’s mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. The Dallas, Texas-based company has been a proud supporter of LLS for 15 years, 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,” said Dave Flitman, Builders FirstSource President and CEO. “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 partnership with LLS, Builders FirstSource committed more than $1 million to support a variety of charitable organizations. These include:
American Red Cross, which shelters, feeds and provides comfort to victims of disasters, distributes international humanitarian aid and supports veterans, military members and their families.
BFS Cares, the Company’s non-profit entity for supporting team members facing natural disasters.
Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which supports first responders, veterans and their families by providing these heroes and the families they leave behind with mortgage-free homes.
Camp Southern Ground, which supports veterans in addition to providing extraordinary camp experiences for children, especially those with neurodevelopmental differences and from military families and underserved communities.
