To help sick children stay close
the best medicine—their families.
Al Bavry, the charity’s founder, explains:
“Why do we do this and why it will continue to be an annual program for Kimal?”
Prior to 2002, we were probably like most companies: We’d get almost daily requests from non-profit organizations for money, and always tried to be responsive and supportive. It occurred to us, though, that writing these fifty-dollar, hundred-dollar, or whatever amount checks, not only was this time-consuming, but that size check simply couldn’t have a large impact by itself. So instead, Kimal started “Building to a Cure” to consolidate and support our donations in a more significant way…staying in the community and having local benefits.
We’re proud to say the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House meet those standards, and then some… We’re proud to have a “home” with them, and for the foreseeable future, we will continue raising money for these great organizations. Since 2018, when Gulfeagle Supply acquired Kimal Lumber, Building to a Cure continues to fundraise and support this mission!
