Richmond, Virginia - May 6, 2014 - Eagle Construction broke ground for the FeedMore House on Tuesday, May 6th at 10am at The Parke at SaddleCreek in Manakin-Sabot.
In attendance were members of the Goochland County Government, FeedMore Staff and Board Members, Eagle Construction Staff and Trade Partners and members of the realty community. Speakers included Juan Conde (Master of Ceremonies), Jeff Kornblau (Vice President/COO, Eagle Construction) Bud Ohly (President/ Co-Founder, Eagle Construction) and Doug Pick (CEO, FeedMore). They were joined by Bryan Kornblau (Chairman of the Eagle Companies), Thomas P. Rohman (Partner, McGuire Woods and Chairman of the FeedMore Board) and Kathy Erhardt (Director of Development, FeedMore) for the Groundbreaking portion of the Ceremony.
The FeedMore house is being built to benefit hungry families and individuals in the Richmond and surrounding area. Eagle Construction and its trade partners are donating their services to build this four-bedroom home in The Parke at SaddleCreek, Eagle's low maintenance single family community in Goochland County.
Once sold, all profits will be donated to FeedMore, allowing Eagle Construction to use its diverse skills and passions to serve the Richmond community in a meaningful way.
The goal of the Eagle/FeedMore partnership is to work together to nourish our community and help fight the battle against hunger. It's a relationship that truly embodies FeedMore's slogan:"Working Together to Feed More."
"We partnered with FeedMore because of how impressed we were with the organization's ability to create vital partnerships among the business community. But also, seeing the impact FeedMore makes in the lives of those who need their help just makes your heart feel good. We have been continuously moved by their effectiveness and wanted to continue our effort and support by doing what we do best, building a home." - Robert "Bud" Ohly, President/ Co-Founder, Eagle Construction.
"FeedMore House Project reinforces Eagle Constructions commitment to building strong, livable communities where neighbors care about each other. We believe that a community is more than a collection of homes, it is a reflection of the people who live there. The goal of the FeedMore House project is to not only donate to this incredible organization but to also create awareness and encourage others to find ways to get involved." - Jeff Kornblau, Chief Operating Officer/ Vice President, Eagle Construction.
"The partnership between FeedMore and Eagle Construction just makes sense. We share the same goal and that is impacting lives and nourishing the community in which we live. It is the American Dream to own a home, Eagle Construction is building a home which will help to achieve the dream of many in helping to provide a meal so that a mother can focus on her next job interview rather than worrying about how she is going to provide a meal for her family, and allowing a father to go to work without concern of where their next meal will come from." - Doug Pick, CEO, FeedMore
