TriFection enthusiastically volunteered items and time to the ninth annual Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) Remodelers’ Council Charity Garage Sale, held in conjunction with the Texas Home & Garden Show at NRG Center on September 24 & 25th.
For the event, TriFection team members helped organizers stage items for sale and load purchases for customers. The company also donated a trailer full of well-maintained appliances saved from job sites throughout the year and donated by friends and family. Proceeds from the garage sale’s sold items go to the GHBA’s designated local charities for the year, which offer a range of assistance throughout the community.
“Clients often upgrade their appliances when remodeling, even if the old ones are in perfect working condition,” said selections assistant MacKinley Donaldson, who volunteered to help with purchases at the event. “Why trash something that works when it can do so much good? Let another family who wants it, use it, and help our community in the process!”
Team members Kevin Soberg, Dan Bonitatibus, and Gary Adams were happy to assist with unloading donations this year and show garage sale rookies how it’s done. Even TriFection President and Co-owner Jeff Roberts got in on the action, helping to unload vans of donated items.
“It always puts a smile on my face,” said Gary, “to be part of the TriFection team that gives back to other families and organizations that really need help.”
Some of the local community charity organizations benefiting from this year’s garage sale include: Casa de Esperanza, offering a safe place for children in crisis due to abuse neglect or HIV/AIDS; SIRE Therapeutic Equestrian Center, improving the quality of life for people with special needs and disabilities through therapeutic horsemanship, and Habitat for Humanity, which builds simple, decent, affordable housing in partnership with people in need.
TriFection leads the effort to promote professionalism in remodeling industry. Jeff Roberts serves as a board member on the GHBA’s Remodelers Council, which is dedicated to promoting professionalism and public awareness of the remodeling profession through education, certification and service to the Greater Houston community.
