Gulf Coast Builders Exchange Membership Drive Recognizes Darrell Turner

SARASOTA, Fla. — The Gulf Coast Builders Exchange (GCBX), a not-for-profit trade organization, recently wrapped up its Building the Community and the Industry membership drive, resulting in a $2,000 contribution to the Manatee County Habitat for Humanity by the first place winner - Darrell Turner, marketing director of the West Coast division of Current Builders.

The successful membership drive, which began in February 2019, added 46 new members to the nearly 400 companies already associated with the Gulf Coast Builders Exchange in Manatee, Sarasota and Charlotte Counties. Turner recruited 26 of those new businesses.

"Our team is honored to participate and support projects for Habitat for Humanity in any way that we can," said Turner. We were pleased to assist Robin Chacon-Primous and her daughter in realizing their dream of home ownership. The Gulf Coast Builders Exchange is a great group of people and this is a prime example of the good work they do and their commitment to the Manatee community."

Located at 2210 10th Street, West in Bradenton, the home is currently under construction. It is the latest Habitat home to be constructed in a neighborhood near LECOM Park and Village of the Arts. The three-bedroom and two-bathroom home is scheduled to be complete in October 2019.

"We are so thankful to Current Builders for their generous gift to Manatee Habitat for Humanity on behalf of the Gulf Coast Builders Exchange," said Diana Shoemaker, executive director of the Manatee County Habitat for Humanity.
