In October 2008 the NSHBA completed its first Homebuilders Care renovation project. The Wee Care Development Centre received a completely renovated, fully donated kitchen and energy efficient appliances.
In a four week time frame, NSHBA members completely renovated the kitchen facilities of the Wee Care Development Centre at 5217 Young St. Time and materials have been generously donated by Econo Renovations, WhiteStone Developments, A & H Renovations, Muller Renovations, JB Quality Construction Services, GE Mabe Canada, Craftmade Kitchens, Wackys Floor Design Centre, Color Your World, Taylor Timbr-Mart, Conserve Nova Scotia, Reliable Rooter Plumbing, uberHome Technology Integration, Living Lighting Home Décor, Kaycan Ltd., Boncor Building Products, Atlantic Countertop and Eddy Group.
The Wee Care Development Centre is a non profit community service which prepares special and regular needs children for public or private school. Project Manager Peter Briand of Econo Renovations and Chairman of the NSHBA Renovators’ Council is enthusiastic about the project’s overall success. “Working on this project with our members has been a truly rewarding experience,” says Briand. “It is great to see people come together to make a great cause like this so successful.”
On October 27th from 10:00 am to 11:00 am these efforts were rewarded at an official opening and ribbon cutting ceremony at the centre located at the corner of Young & Barrington streets. This project is only the first of many dedicated to help Nova Scotians in need.
