February 6, 2019
Charitable contribution will be used to support HomeAid BUILDS and CARES, two critical programs offered by the organization
ROSEVILLE – HomeAid Sacramento, the charitable arm of the North State Building Industry Association (BIA), announced today a contribution of $30,000 from U.S. Bank that will be used to elevate its efforts to provide dignified housing options for the greater Sacramento region’s homeless population. U.S. Bank’s gift will specifically be allocated to two of HomeAid’s most impactful programs: HomeAid BUILDS and CARES.
“We are absolutely thrilled with U.S. Bank’s wonderful expression of generosity,” said Beth Kang, Executive Director of HomeAid Sacramento. “The lifeblood of organizations like ours is the tremendous support we receive from local individuals, organizations, and companies like U.S. Bank. Their gift will enable us to enhance our programmatic offerings and grow our reach in the community as we work our shelter provider partners to provide housing to our homeless neighbors.”
“U.S. Bank is pleased to lend its support to HomeAid Sacramento, which is making a discernible difference in the lives of thousands of homeless individuals and families in the area,” said Chris Vargas, Vice President of Mortgage Lending with U.S. Bank and a member of HomeAid’s 2019 Board of Directors. “Our corporate giving and engagement program at U.S. Bank is called Community Possible and it comes to life in the areas of Work, Home and Play. HomeAid is an inspirational organization and an example of how we support home, working hard to address the issue of homelessness in the region. We are pleased to double down on their track record and help propel their work to even greater levels.”
HomeAid BUILDS is a concerted effort to mobilize members of the North State BIA to give back to their community by donating labor, materials, and expertise to build and remodel dignified housing for homeless families and individuals. Meanwhile, HomeAid CARES rallies volunteers from the community to assist with CARE Days, which offer opportunities for volunteers to participate in events such as Painting a Better Tomorrow and the annual Spread the Warmth Blanket Drive.
