Interview with Brynn McKenry, the development manager of the Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County, about the #DoMore24DE campaign. The conversation talks about the impact of the campaign, raising money for more than 400 nonprofits in Delaware. The Habitat was able to accomplish a lot of activities with the funds raised last year, including hosting seven “Rock the Block” events, and even organizing critical repair programs for homeowners. Brynn and Christopher talk about the benefits of team-building events like volunteering for Habitat, and how homeownership has helped the beneficiaries achieve opportunities they never dreamed would be possible.
