CAGC Young Leaders are spreading joy this holiday season to two families within our industry who were affected by Hurricane Florence. GroundBreak is pleased to share the stories about these courageous families with our readers. Please consider helping CAGC help these families through a monetary donation or by donating gift cards to Walmart, Target, Kohl’s, Lowes, Home Depot, or restaurants.
CAGC will be accepting donations at the Young Leader Leadership Conference on November 15. Otherwise, please send all donations to CACG’s office at 4824 Parkway Plaza Blvd., Suite 115, Charlotte, NC 28217.
Here are background stories about these two families in need.
Family 1: Tyler, an employee of one of CAGC’s general contractor members in the Coastal area, and his five year old son, had their home completely flooded by Hurricane Florence. In addition to the water damage, mold has taken over the entire home. Anything with fabric has been destroyed, including beds, couches, blankets, etc. Luckily, they were able to remove their clothing from the home before the flood. At this time they are staying with friends until they figure out how to proceed.
Family 2: Mark, an employee of a CAGC partnered electric company, and his family’s home was destroyed by Hurricane Florence. The storm completely ripped apart parts of the roof on their home, which caused flooding inside. The floors and walls are covered in black mold now, which is starting to cause health issues for the family. Mark’s 12-year-old son, who is autistic, is home schooled. As you can imagine, being home- schooled at this time is very difficult. All furniture and belongings that were in the house have all been destroyed. The family is waiting for help from FEMA.
Again, please consider sending a check or providing gift card(s) from major Carolinas retailers and restaurants.
