Plus, help raise the funds needed to build the Ejigu-Kere family home! Executive Build has set the goal of raising $75,000 needed to sponsor the Ejigu-Kere family home. Co-Chairs Don Pearson, Regional President of Wells Fargo, and Steve Johnson, Chief Financial Officer of Parr Lumber, have each committed $2,500 toward the home and are reaching out to 28 of their peers to do the same!

Each Executive Build participant will have their name and their company’s name listed on the build site sign for the family’s home. Please RSVP by filling out and returning the form located here, by October 7, 2011. Spots are available for the first 28 responders.
