In honor of Veteran’s Day, Sussex County Habitat for Humanity (SCHFH) proudly announced that it will begin a Veteran Build Project. Kevin Gilmore, Executive Director of Sussex County Habitat for Humanity, thanked veteran Mike Nally, who agreed to be the overall Project Coordinator.
Mike Nally served in the US Army from 1982 to 1986 in the Ranger Department and the 75th Ranger Regiment. In addition, he also served in the Maryland and Pennsylvania National Guard from 1988 to 1990. Currently Mike owns Lead Your Way Solutions, a Management Consulting business, and Nally Consulting, a Real Estate Development Company. He has been associated with Sussex County Habitat for Humanity in various roles for over a decade.
“Being a veteran and being a long time partner with Habitat for Humanity makes this a perfect fit for me, hopefully people throughout Sussex County will have the chance to find something meaningful for them during the project,” commented Nally. “I am excited to serve those that have served our country. I believe helping a veteran build a home for their family is a wonderful way to say thanks.”
Tom Protack, Community Engagement Director for Sussex County Habitat for Humanity, explained that a lot in Georgetown Point where SCHFH is currently building has been chosen to serve as a location for those participating across Sussex County. With Georgetown approximately 16 miles from anywhere in the county, Habitat for Humanity, hopes to increase the participation in this project.
Mike Nally, Project Coordinator, is beginning the initial planning stages and is soliciting participation. The project will include opportunities for volunteers, fundraising, special events and build days. Individuals wanting to learn more about the project are encouraged to email their contact information and how they would like to participate to Mike Nally at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“This project is more than building a home, I want Sussex County to have the chance to come together and share a wonderful experience with fellow veterans and families of those who have served,” commented Nally. “We need and want veterans, veteran’s families and people who want to say thanks to our veterans to contribute to the effort in any way they see fit.”
