Holiday Toy Drive

In mid December at the annual President's Luncheon and at other MIBA Holiday Events, members of the Maryland Building Industry Association (MBIA) contribute greatly to the Home Builders Care Foundation's Holiday Toy Collection. At the event, toys, games, clothing and other items are generously donated.

2017 TOY DRIVE - our 15th YEAR!

The Home Builders Care Foundation collects toys and gift cards to benefit low-income and homeless children and families through a local agency every holiday season. Please help bring joy to a needy child this holiday season by donating a new, unwrapped toy or gift card to our Holiday Toy Drive.

This year, toys and gifts will be delivered to Sarah’s House. In Fort Meade.  Sarah’s House is a supportive housing program offering emergency shelter and project-based supportive housing with an array of other services for families experiencing homelessness in Anne Arundel County.

Nutrition Packs for the Homeless

The Professional Women in Building (PWB) council of MBIA has once again  provided a little help for the homeless this fall!  Their annual goal is to assemble 200 care packs for the homeless.

This care packs are now in stock - in time for National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week in November.

Each pack will contain not only nutritional to-go snacks but also key Helpline and Crisis Hotline information to help connect neighbors in need to community resources and assistance programs throughout Maryland.  Packs are intended to be kept on hand in your car to give to someone in need you may see on the street.

Clothing Drive

At our annual Bull & Oyster Roast event, Home Builders Care and MBIA’s Professional Women in Building Chapter host a career clothing drive. Clothes are donated to programs assisting low-income clients with job-readiness and professional development skills.

Our 2017 donations benefited the Interfaith Clothing Center in Rockville.
