Stock Development, a premier Southwest Florida development firm, has been supporting Builders Care for the second year in a row, pledging support to Builders Care through each home sale in its Paseo Community in Fort Myers. Stock Development presented a check to Builders Care based on its first and second quarter sales in the amount of $8,300 raising the total donation since 2012 to $18,900. As a platinum-certified building partner, Stock Development is donating $100 from each home sale to Builders Care, providing funding to assist them in helping local homeowners in need of renovations.
“We believe in the mission of Builders Care and are thrilled to be involved in helping our community through our industry,” said Brian Stock, CEO Stock Development.
“Stock Development’s support is another example of the amazing commitment that some of our local builders have to our community,” said Butch Ritter, president of Lee BIA Builders Care. “We are looking forward to a great partnership to help local homeowners in need.”
The funds provided by Stock Development’s home sales in Lee County will provide wheelchair ramps, handicap accessibility, widened doorways, roof and air conditioning repairs and more.
