NFRC Helps Local "Green" Charity

NFRC will give the money collected through voluntary donations in return for lapel pins to the Chesapeake Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit housing organization that works in partnership with families in need of housing to build simple, decent, and affordable homes.

Since 1982, the Chesapeake Habitat for Humanity has completed more than 140 homes and has housed more than 300 family members, including at least 200 children.

The lapel pins feature a colorful crab and the NFRC logo as shown above.

As of lunchtime today, NFRC has raised approximately $500 and hopes to raise more. See Cheryl Gendron or Melanie Miller at the NFRC desk just outside the main meeting room to get your pin. They also make great souvenirs and keepsakes for friends and family members. The suggested donation is just $10.
