January 30, 2009
WILMINGTON, DE — The Delaware Chapter of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) presented a check for $25,000 to Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County at its holiday luncheon last month, according to a press release.
The $25,000 donation was proceeds from the Delaware Chapter’s 17th annual golf tournament, the release stated.
Kevin Smith, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County, said: "We’re just really grateful to IFMA Delaware for its continued support. IFMA sees what we’re trying to do and has really gotten behind us full force. It’s good to know we’ve got partners like IFMA Delaware that are getting beside us and helping us out."
The nonprofit housing organization plans to use the money to help build 10 townhouses in
for working families who earn between 25 to 60 percent of the county’s median income; about 70 to 80 percent of those selected are single mothers, the release noted. Wilmington
The Delaware Chapter has supported the local Habitat for Humanity through proceeds from its annual golf outing since 1995; chapter members have also volunteered their time and expertise during monthly workdays at local building sites, the release added.
