Qualified families may apply to Habitat for new refrigerators

February 14, 2021

Sussex County Habitat for Humanity is helping eligible residents save money on their energy costs.

As part of its Neighborhood Revitalization program, Sussex Habitat is looking to make a big difference in the lives of Sussex County families by providing a brand-new, Energy Star-certified refrigerator for just $50.

The Habitat ReStore staff is responsible for loading and delivering the new refrigerators and will also remove the old refrigerator for recycling. The program’s first delivery was in December, and the ReStore staff plans to deliver the 50th refrigerator Monday, Feb. 15.

Thanks to a $500,000 empowerment grant from Energize Delaware, 100 more Sussex County households served by Delmarva Power will receive a new refrigerator.

For more information, eligible families can go to and search refrigerator replacement, contact the neighborhood revitalization manager at 302-855-1153, Ext. 208, or email
