Nancy Navarro to Present Community Builder Award to Local Builder and Philanthropist

Montgomery County Council President, Nancy Navarro will present the Pettit Family Charitable Foundation and Mr. Dick Pettit with the Home Builders Care Foundation’s (HBCF) prestigious Community Builder Award at the Maryland-National Capital Building Industry Association’s (MNCBIA) membership dinner meeting tonight at the Pooks Hill Marriott In Bethesda, MD.

HBCF’s Community Builder Award is presented to an individual or organization affiliated with the local home building industry in recognition of significant contributions to the community through unselfish efforts and dedication in support of projects that help the poor and disadvantaged in our communities.

The Pettit Family Charitable Foundation has demonstrated its support of the mission of Home Builders Care to build for Montgomery County’s neighbors in need for many years. But not only have the Pettits been long-time supporters of HBCF, they have also – for years – supported numerous other charities throughout the County.

Currently, Dick Pettit serves as Vice Chair of the Montgomery County Coalition for the Homeless who help provide shelter to about 1,000 homeless people who were recorded in the County last year. He is a Past President and Life Director of MNCBIA.

The cooperation, dedication and spirit of the 2012 Community Builder Award winner is an excellent example of why the Home Builders Care charitable construction program succeeds in helping end homelessness by improving the lives of at-risk individuals and families in our communities.
