Ruppert Landscape received the 2014 Community Builder Award.

Ruppert Landscape received the 2014 Community Builder Award from the Home Builders Care Foundation (HBCF).

The award was presented to Ruppert Landscape in recognition of its contributions and support with hosting the organization’s first annual Bull & Oyster Roast on the company’s grounds in Laytonsville, Md. The event, held in April, had about 240 industry professionals in attendance and also was used to spearhead a career clothing drive along with the Professional Women in Building, Maryland chapter. More than 500 items were collected at the clothing drive and donated to a career development center in Silver Spring.

“We’ve been involved with the Maryland National Capital’s Building Industry Association and their charitable giving affiliate the Home Builders Care Foundation for many years,” said Shane Carmadella, business development manager at Ruppert. “The foundation’s ability to connect existing community resources that are already providing much-needed aid in our communities with industry professionals, who want to give back and utilize their industry skills and resources, is really invaluable. These public/private partnerships are a great way to achieve good in our communities and we are very honored to be involved with the HBCF and the difference they are making.”
