A Lubbock business has been honored with a prestigious cash award, and chosen to share the proceeds.
Betenbough Homes is the recipient of the Hearthstone BUILDER Humanitarian Award. It goes to builders who show commitment to public service. One aspect of the award is that Hearthstone Foundation will give $75,000 to the charity of the recipient's choice. Betenbough decided to match the award, and split it between two charities, The Children's Home of Lubbock, and an organization that wished to remain anonymous.
"It's unbelievable," Ministry Director Holly Betenbough said. "To be able to be a part of enriching someone else's life, and to be a part of giving to someone else outside of yourself is the greatest blessing and the greatest gift of all. So, it's been a real blessing to us to be able to do that."
The Betenbough's are known for their charitable efforts. They've contributed to charities throughout the world.
