GOLO donates to habitat for humanity of New Castle County and the Ministry of Caring
As part of our ongoing commitment to support local community-based initiatives, GOLO recently announced donations to Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County ($10,000) and The Ministry of Caring ($5,000).
The funds will support the affordable housing projects for Habitat for Humanity and the nutritious meals program at The Ministry of Caring.
"We're so excited to partner with these two amazing organizations," says Jennifer Brooks, President of GOLO. "We've long admired their commitment and leadership on important issues in our community, like food insecurity and revitalizing neighborhoods through affordable housing."
Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County is committed to changing lives and landscapes by revitalizing neighborhoods and empowering the families they serve.
Since 1986, Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County has built more than 250 homes and ranks among the top three Habitat northeast affiliates of 210 affiliates (from Delaware to Maine) in terms of housing production. Throughout their 33-year history, they have served more than 350 New Castle County families.
"We're experiencing tremendous growth in our critical repairs and Aging in Place programs," says Kevin Smith, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County. "GOLO's donation provides much-needed funds that help us meet the needs of families in New Castle County."
The Ministry of Caring is committed to serving those living in poverty. Their programs, staff, and volunteers offer the neediest neighbors hospitality and support while providing basic needs to help them gain self-sufficiency, restore their self-worth, and renew their hope for the future.
The organization feeds the hungry – with no questions asked – and provides emergency shelter and permanent and supportive housing, including the region’s only residence for homeless people living with HIV/AIDS.
“We are grateful to GOLO for their leadership in the community and their caring donation to our organization,” said Priscilla Rakestraw, Deputy Director of Development for The Ministry of Caring. “This donation will help support the poor, hungry, and homeless men, women, and children that we serve every day at our three Emmanuel Dining Room locations.”
