Remodeling association helps community rebuild
Saturday, April S, the Bucks-Mont chapter of the kational Association of the Remodeling Industry joined together in helping the Boy Scouts of America in a rebuilding project.
It was less than six months ago that Camp Ockanickon, a reserve often used by local Boy Scouts located in Pipersville, was impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Part of the storm destroyed various tent platform decks that are utilized by the BSA. BucksMont kARI led the charge to raise more than $1,000 of materials and they dispatched 10 volunteers to help in the reconstruction and repair of the platforms..
It was an especially gratifying venture as a few of the kARI members were past Boy Scouts and Scoutmasters.
The event was led by Bucks Mont kARI’s Community Service Community. In the past year, the committee helped frame a house for Habitat for Humanity and replaced a roof for a disabled man in Bucks. In the coming weeks Bucks-Mont kARI will be helping another family in need in Bristol Township.
Bucks-Mont kARI membership encourages professionalism and skill development. Its charitable community service projects are opportunities for members to use their craftsmanship and help others in need.
Bucks-Mont kARI was established in 1992. It encompasses more than 150 member companies in the geographic regions of Bucks and Montgomery counties. The association includes contractors, remodelers and suppliers who are dedicated to informing the public of the need for, and the advantages of, maintaining homes and buildings in good condition, and thereby improving the housing and building inventory of the community.
There are 5T kARI chapters in the United States and over T,000 total members. To date, Bucks-Mont kARI is the largest chapter in Pennsylvania, third largest in the kortheast region of the U.S. and 14th largest in the country. The national RIficHV aUH ORcaWHd Ln DHV Plaines, Ill.
