Professional Women in Building, members of the Acadiana Home Builders Association, are once again putting on the Building A Better Christmas give-away.

Building a Better Christmas gives away about $2,000 worth of “help” to a family in need, in the form of Christmas presents for the children and help for the parents.

“Help for the parents” in the past has been paying off or paying toward a major debt that has been a hindrance to the family, paying utility bills for the family, gift card to Walgreens to help with prescription costs for medical needs, gift card to WalMart to help with groceries to provide for their family.

AHBA - Professional Women in Building is a non-profit organization, funded through hand-made Christmas Ornaments sold to the public.

PWIB needs your help to make this year's give-away a success: they need nominations.  If you know of a family in need, a family who has fallen on hard times through no fault of their own, a family with children who deserve a really awesome Christmas, submit your nomination (complete with contact information) to

The nomination cut-off date is December 14th at 5pm.  The winning family will be chosen, and gifts delivered, just a few days before Christmas.
