When Jim Weller asked to have his radio show, "Weller Does Delmarva" do a live show at DryZone's Red Barn in Ellendale, Bill and Heather Anderson, the owner operators of DryZone knew that they wanted to maximize this event to impact the community. What better way to impact the community than a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity? Habitat for Humanity does so many wonderful things for the community, from building homes to having ReStore shopping opportunities.
The idea was launched that we could create a vehicle through which both goods and financial donations would be donated to Habitat for Humanity by offereing to the community the opportunity to personalize boards for a donation to Habitat for Humanity. The personalized boards and the funds to personlize them would then be donated to Habitat for Humanity. Lane Builders donated a pallet of 2x4s for the event and Jay Gundy from Habitat for Humanity was on hand to collect funds which were donated by the participants and viewers of the "Weller Does Delmarva" show. Jack Riddle, the President of Community Bank Delaware was on hand and the bank matched some of the funds which were donated. Nearly $1000 was donated to Habitat for Humanity and a pallet of 2x4s were donated through the course of this event. DryZone is thrilled to have been able to be a part of this successful effort. The show took place on July 8th, 2017.
