Proceeds from the A Home for the Holidays project will go to Make-A-Wish OKI, which grants life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. To date, the organization has granted more than 17,500 life-changing wishes and relies on the support of the public to make these wishes come true.
Proceeds also go to the HBA Charitable and Education Foundation, founded in 2012 to provide scholarships for students entering the construction industry, and to give back to the community through special charitable donations, including to the Greater Cleveland Fisher House, Homes for Our Troops, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and Make-A-Wish.
