auction logoThe New Hampshire Home Builders Association (NHHBA) saw a unique service it could provide to the growing number of disabled veterans in the state: donating the skilled construction services of its members to make veterans’ homes work better for them.

After raising more than $12,000 in its inaugural Hammers for Veterans Auction last month, the NHHBA can now begin purchasing the materials needed for its members to build accessible ramps, remodel living spaces or complete other construction projects in veterans’ homes.

NHHBA auctioned a number of fun and unique items during the week leading up to the 48th New Hampshire State Home Show March 13-15. The auction catalog consisted of 116 items, including trips to the Caribbean, tickets to the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots games, and building products.

Many home show vendors participated by donating items that were included in this online auction.

“We are extremely grateful to the NHHBA members who either donated items or went out to local businesses and solicited for the auction catalog,” said Hammers for Veterans Auction Committee Chair Lynette Rogers.

The Hammers for Veterans Auction is the first program of NHHBA’s newly created BuildersCare NH Foundation.
