Recently, a 50-year old woman in Regina Saskatchewan who recently lost mobility in both legs due to an MS diagnosis was selected to receive a complete home renovation by a local non-profit project called Build Love. Her family’s home will receive a complete renovation throughout, including the kitchen, bathroom and living space in order to make the space more accessible.
Who is Build Love?
The Build Love project was established in 2018, with the goal of improving the quality of life for a family who lives with non-typical challenges in Regina.
The project team consists of contractors, designers, fundraising partners, donors, and loads of volunteers, all determined to “pay it forward” and improve lives in their community. At the helm is a trio of partners –Derek Wu and Trevor Anderson, owner/operators of Collaborative Construction –a commercial and residential building company in Regina, along with Brandon Fuchs, owner/operator of Superior FD Contracting. Leading the design aspect of Build Love is Amanda Brady, who owns Clear Space Design Co.
How to Help Out
Throughout the year, Build Love hosts fundraising events like garage sales, golf tournaments and more to further fund these incredibly altruistic projects. However, there are many other ways that people can lend a hand, such as via volunteer teams, cash donations, or through corporate investment programs.
Spread the Love
Wouldn’t it be amazing to see groups like this popping up all over the country? Contractors, volunteers and corporations coming together to give deserving families a helping hand. It could happen, couldn’t it? The question is, are you willing to step up to this example and get involved with a project like this in your own community?
