Consumers Builders Supply Donates to St. Jude Dream House Giveaway
Lorain Based Supplier Donated Materials to Aid Fundraiser
Lorain, OH – June 27, 2019 – Contractor and homeowner building supply company Consumers Builders Supply donated building materials to the St. Jude Dream House Giveaway Project. The house is located at 33908 Mitchell Court in Avon Lake. The St. Jude house sells tickets for a chance to win a house in Avon Lake, with all ticket sales supporting St. Jude and helping families receive treatment, travel, and food as St. Jude does not charge patients. Local contractors, builders, suppliers, and the City of Avon Lake itself came together to build the 2019 St. Jude Dream House. Jillian Riddell, an executive at Consumers Builders Supply, talks about an Avon Lake family that resonated with herself and the CBS family.
“This is not our first year that we have participated; however, this is our largest involvement yet as the community is near to our hearts,” Riddell said. “The family has been living in Avon Lake since the 1970s. That same family also experienced the effects of childhood cancer as one of the daughters was diagnosed with leukemia at age 13. She has since recovered and grown up with a family of her own, with a husband and three children. We recognize not all families are so lucky and wanted to pay it forward on behalf of all those who have supported us during that time and beyond.”
Consumers Builders Supply donated concrete and preparatory materials to the housing project, including the concrete supporting the patio pavers. One of the brands carried by Consumers Builders Supply, Unilock, worked alongside in order to create the Beacon Hill Flagstone for the outdoor kitchen space.
“Our donation allowed Cleveland Custom Homes to ensure funds were not used to purchase materials that weren’t offered as a donation. This, along with all other donations, allowed one hundred percent of proceeds from the sale of this house to be given directly to the St. Jude organization,” Riddell added.
Jeff Crawford of Cleveland Custom Homes, who was the general contractor for the St. Jude Dream House, speaks on the donations to the project. “Every year we see people and companies rise up and express a no strings attached generosity. Not only did Consumers donate concrete material, stone material, other materials, and labor, their leadership also reached out to other vendors and asked them to donate material and labor as well. It reflects their well-established relationships in the industry and next mile actions.”
