Update 12/21/12: Amazing! Fantastic! Unbelievable! Someone will need to figure out the value of ABA’s Toy Drive. In addition to an abundance of toys delivered yesterday, over $2,000 in gift cards were presented. Sunshine Home reps said in their 18 years, this is the best Christmas they’ve ever had. Additionally, the GC’s who put the bid on the street enjoyed the involvement and were successful in getting donations from companies the ABA executive director has never heard of! The above depicts the huge success of this endeavor. Thank you to all who participated and volunteered!
Original Post: The Arizona Builders Alliance (ABA) is having their Toy Drive to make a difference in the lives of Phoenix Area displaced children. Instead of a regular press release, McCarthy used SmartBidNet to get the word out about Sunshine Homes to their subcontractors. Many other commercial construction companies that belong to the ABA are planning to do the same with their own invitation to bid software.
Here are the details:
