CULTURE AND COMMUNITY
We care about our people and the communities we serve.
More than a decade ago, Builders FirstSource established an enduring partnership with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Because all of us know someone or have been impacted directly by the devastation of blood cancer, we’re committed to transforming the lives of patients diagnosed each year.
Through a variety of charitable efforts, including the participation of thousands of team members in LLS’s signature Light the Night events across the country, Builders FirstSource continuously supports the non-profit’s mission to raise money for research that will cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
AMONG LLS CORPORATE
Builders FirstSource also supports several additional organizations to create a meaningful difference in the lives of others and an enduring impact on the communities where we live and work.
1 Calculation based on production data for Builders FirstSource READY-FRAME® precut framing packages and roof and floor trusses since January 1, 2019. An independent third-party study found that the lumber reduction from homes built with READY-FRAME®, compared to traditional stick-framed homes, equals approximately 7.8 trees per the average size US home of approximately 2,300 sq. ft. We calculate the number of homes supplied with READY-FRAME® using our average board footage processed per house, which is based on our 2019 READY-FRAME® saw production data and our 2019 data of actual homes produced with READY-FRAME®.The structural building components association (SBCA) study "Framing the American Dream" (sbcindustry.com/fad) found that stick-framed structures use 25% more lumber than manufactured components. We calculate the number of trees saved for homes using our roof and floor trusses using a 25% savings on total board footage production.
