Helping a family in need on Long Island, NY

A dedication to helping those in need is a great and noble thing. At http://www.BidForMaterials.com we are familiar with aiding those less fortunate by helping them to attain better living conditions, and are proud to do so. We recently became familiar with a new non-for-profit foundation called Building Hope for Long Island. Their mission is simple; “To Build Hope in Long Island communities by repairing ordinary homes for extraordinary families.” Their goal is to help one family per year. We are reaching out to you today in order to help them attain this goal.

Their latest endeavor is to help James Shaljian and his family. James has been battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma for many years. Mold in their small two bedroom home forced James out of the house as it was jeopardizing his health and recovery. The community converted a small cottage on their property to make it livable for James while his wife, Christine, and four daughters remained in the main house. They plan to start building the Shaljian’s new home this October so the family will be able to be under the same roof this upcoming holiday season.

Building Hope for Long Island has a Facebook page, a website: http://www.buildinghopeforli.org and has received attention from many genres of the media. Through the spotlight of the media and their involvement with networking on Facebook they have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our neighbors, fellow contractors, suppliers, and many others who have promised their time, expertise and materials to help build this home. Those involved have been receiving a huge amount of attention for their involvement in this admirable foundation that is reaching out to help local Long Islanders.

This foundation is still in its infancy, and is in desperate need of any donations that you might be able to provide. If you can provide materials, supplies, or monetary donations, it would be greatly appreciated. The materials are not limited to roofing supplies, drywall supplies, lumber, plumbing supplies, and electrical supplies to name a few. All donations will be tax-deductable. It is the support of great people that are willing to help others that aid will enable this foundation to go on and continue to help others in need now, as well as in the future. Donations can be made via their Facebook page for Building Hope for LI, their website, or mailed to Building Hope for Long Island at PO Box 551, Mount Sinai, NY 11766.
