On Tuesday, December 7, 2021, The Niagara Home Builders’ Association hosted their annual Christmas Celebration, marking their first in person Holiday dinner since 2019, which took place at the Holiday Inn Convention Centre in St. Catharines.
For over 10 years, the NHBA has partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of North & West Niagara in order to raise donations for the youth they provide support services to on a daily basis.
This year saw a record number of donations from members, which included new, unwrapped gifts for youth ages 6-16 years old.
“We are honoured to continue to assist Big Brothers, Big Sisters year after year through the generosity of our Member companies”, comments NHBA President David Samis. “This agency is a staple of our community and we applaud their positive contributions throughout the Niagara Region”
Over 100 toys, books, games and gift cards were delivered to the BBBS St. Catharines office on Wednesday morning, where staff members met the donations with open arms. The donations will be sorted and distributed based upon age groups.
The Mission Statement of the BBBS is to enable life-changing mentoring relationships to ignite the power and potential of young people. The NHBA is proud to support an organization which provides such a positive impact for the children and youth of our community.
