individuals

SACRAMENTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AFP–At its annual National Philanthropy Day (NPD) Awards Luncheon, the California
Capital Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals
,
(AFPCCC), recognized Bryce Robicheau with the organization’s prestigious
“Volunteer Fundraiser of the Year” award.

Robicheau was honored among a distinguished field of nominees based on
his work through HomeAid

in-kind donations. These donations fund and support the construction and
renovation of dignified emergency and transitional shelter housing in
the Sacramento region.

efforts, countless families and individuals experiencing homelessness
have been given access to dignified shelter, where they can rebuild
their lives.”

HomeAid emergency and transitional shelter construction and renovation
projects. He also served as Chairman for HomeAid Sacramento’s successful
trap shoot fundraiser this year — an annual event that accounts for more
than one-third of the budget for the official charity of the North
State Building Industry Association

heart of gold.”

In his emotional acceptance, Robicheau shared inspirational stories of
his family and upbringing that taught him the value of giving back. He
also thanked his colleagues in the roofing and homebuilding industry
with an appeal to get even more involved: “We literally put roofs
over people’s heads– there is no better feeling. It will change your
heart. It might change your life. I know it changed mine.
