In its 22-year tradition, Helping Hands for the Holidays has contributed more than $500,000 to three local charities. This holiday season, the Aubuchon Team of Companies added $37,800 to that total.  Despite the challenge of not hosting an in-person fundraiser in November, contributions surpassed last year’s total amount.

In cooperation with the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, the Aubuchon Team of Companies proudly presented checks in the amount of $12,600 each to representatives from Make-a-Wish Southern Florida, Ronald McDonald House Charities Southwest Florida and Builders Care.  Here is what the donations meant to one organization.

“I’ve attended the event several times over the years but being on the receiving end is entirely different and so meaningful; it’s encouraging, humbling, prideful, and what a sense of community! “ said Crystal Stouten, Executive Director of Lee BIA Builders Care.  “I truly want to personally thank your entire team for making this happen.”

The Aubuchon Team of Companies looks forward to continuing this tradition of giving at their 2021 Helping Hands for the Holidays on Nov. 22!

The Aubuchon Team of Companies includes Aubuchon Homes, Miloff Aubuchon Realty Group, Evalutions by Aubuchon a Design Group, Omni One Title Services, and Omni One Insurance.  Their offices are located at 4707 SE 9th Place in Cape Coral.  For more information visit www.teamaubuchon.com.
