Long Neck Sunrise Rotary donates to Habitat For Humanity

January 6, 2019

The Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club donated $1,000 to Sussex County Habitat for Humanity to assist in its home repair and home building programs. Funds came from proceeds of the club’s golf tournament to aid local and other Rotary charities.

Sussex County Habitat for Humanity builds or renovates eight to 10 homes annually that are sold to deserving individuals or families. Homeowners also have mentors to help them deal with home issues and monthly budgets. Sussex County Habitat also offers a home repair program. 

Sussex Habitat Executive Director Kevin Gilmore said its administrative costs are low, and 87 cents per dollar goes straight into programs.

 The Habitat ReStore sells gently used furniture, appliances, home decor, and reusable and surplus building materials. The ReStore accepts donated goods, and all proceeds remain in Sussex County. Anyone who donates to the ReStore will receive a 15 percent coupon from Johnny Janosik World of Furniture.

“We are very happy to be able to support the work of Habitat for Humanity with the proceeds of our annual golf tournament. What they do is sorely needed in our community,” said Mike Hall, Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club president.

The Long Neck Sunrise Rotary Club meets for breakfast at 7:30 a.m. each Tuesday at the Ocean Grill II on Long Neck Road. Visitors and prospective members are always welcome.
