The HBASC partners with non-profits to help our community where we can with our annual Contractors Yard Sale
For over 25 years, the Home Builders Association of Southwest Colorado partnered with Habitat for Humanity of La Plata County to help Habitat build attainable housing. The HBASC secured quality construction materials at low prices by soliciting donations from our Builder and Associate Members and their corporate vendors. These donations provided materials for Habitat’s home construction projects and for our annual Contractors Yard Sale. The funds raised in this joint effort helped sustain both organizations for many years.
COVID-19 created many changes in the Contractors Yard Sale format and attendance in 2020. Now, it’s time to rethink and renew.
We would like to thank Habitat for Humanity of La Plata County for partnering with us for so many years, for providing the volunteers that make this event possible, the countless hours organizing and managing key elements, and more.
We would also like to thank our Founding and Honorary members who believed it was important to bring awareness to attainable housing issues to our community in a fun and exciting way. For more than 20 years, these dedicated volunteers breathed life into this event, and continued to offer guidance even after retiring.
Both the HBASC and Habitat for Humanity of La Plata County have grown significantly and we have valued this long-standing partnership. HBASC has decided to extend our support to other regional non-profits focusing on attainable and affordable housing issues. We will announce more details in the near future as we move through the process of opening the Contractors Yard Sale to non-profit applicants for this wonderful event.
