As a nonprofit construction organization, Building Goodness Foundation (BGF) relies on trucks almost every day we’re working on an active job site. BGF partners with the highest-quality NGOs and domestic nonprofit organizations to design and build structures which increase our partners’ capacity to do great work. We rely on trucks to help us move materials and people to and from each construction site, whether it’s the renovation of the Virginia Institute of Autism facility in Charlottesville, Virginia or the construction of a new women’s health and birthing clinic in Tom Gato, Haiti. We have worked in Virginia, Mississippi, and Colorado, and abroad in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Liberia, and Nicaragua. Building Goodness Foundation connects skilled volunteers from the design and construction industries with opportunities to use their professional skills for a good cause, and in developing countries we also hire local work crews, to avoid displacing local labor. High-quality machinery is essential in helping us build goodness in the world. Learn more about Building Goodness Foundation by visiting:

Operation FINALLY HOME was established in 2005 as a nonpartisan/nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization providing custom-built, mortgage-free homes to America’s military heroes and the widows of the fallen, those who have worn America’s uniform and sacrificed so much to defend our freedoms and values. Operation FINALLY HOME partners with corporate sponsors, builder associations, builders, developers, individual contributors, and volunteers to help America’s military heroes and their families transition to the home front by addressing one of their most pressing needs—a home to call their own. With faith in God and determined action, we will have hundreds of homes built annually across the nation for our Heroes, those who have sacrificed while wearing America’s uniform in defense of our freedoms and values, helping them get their lives back on track after the hardships they have faced. We want Operation FINALLY HOME to be a nationally recognized charity and a household name that inspires others to help in our cause. Our trucks are used to move materials to job sites, setup for surprises/dedications, and providing transportation to our families to Operation FINALLY HOME events.
