community outreach program
Buska Gives Back
Buska Gives Back is our community outreach program made possible through our partnership with Gradient Gives Back Foundation, a non-profit organization. We invite Americans who have fallen on hard times to connect with us for an opportunity to be awarded six months of housing payments.
Michael and Amanda Witter and their three children have been stricken with medical and employment challenges, which has made staying current with their bills challenging. Two years ago, Michael broke his back while working as a crane operator in a factory but was able to save another man’s life in the process. Unknowingly, he had previous back issues so wasn’t able to qualify for worker’s compensation. After two spinal fusion surgeries that left him immobile for 16 months, he went back to school and graduated in May 2015 with an Associate’s Degree in architecture design and technology. Right after he graduated, he was able to obtain a job but lost it due to the downsizing of the company. He remains hopeful that he will be able to find another job in architecture design.
“We are honored to be able to partner with the Gives Back Foundation and extend a helping hand to the Witter family during a time when they are facing an array of hardships. Our hope is that some of the burden will be lifted from the family with our gift and the generous gifts from our community.”
