REPORT: Holmes Building Materials saves Christmas

Louisiana dealer steps up to assist the Salvation Army.

BY HBSDealer Staff

Holmes Building Materials, a 2-unit dealer with locations in Baton Rouge and Denham Springs, La., recently donated the use of a vacant building for use by the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program.

The space had formerly been a hardware store owned by the dealer. The location has been on the market for nearly a year, according to reports by WFAB9 and the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report.

The Salvation Army plans to use the space to store and distribute more than 4,000 Christmas presents. A pervious space used for the program had suffered structural damage and could no longer be used.

If someone had not stepped up to donate the space, the Salvation Army said the program would not have survived.
