Greg spent 15.5 total hours volunteering and participated in four team events during the first quarter. He frequently spent time helping sort and load several tons of meals and meal boxes for families in need through the Food Bank of Delaware in Milford, and also volunteered with the Central Delaware Habitat for Humanity. He helped the organization build two homes – one for a veteran with Multiple Sclerosis and another for a family with seven children. Greg helped cut out doors, build interior walls, install new studs, paint, clean and more. Greg also donated his time to the DNREC Beach Grass Planting event at Cape Henlopen State Park. The plantings will help reinforce and protect the coastline from storms and tides.
In addition to his own volunteering efforts, Greg has also encouraged his friends and family members to join in each of his efforts, adding 28 hours to SOLitude’s annual goal of 2,500 volunteering hours for The SOLution. His enthusiasm and passion infects those around him and his level of productivity is greatly appreciated by the organizations that he supports.
“Greg is always willing to spend his weekends helping others in his community and attends almost every volunteering event that is planned for our Georgetown, Delaware team,” said SOLitude Lake Management CEO Kevin Tucker. “We appreciate Greg’s commitment to his community and know he is more than deserving of this recognition through The SOLution.”
SOLitude’s Georgetown, Delaware Team did an outstanding job supporting all of the SOLution initiatives in the state as well, with almost 100% participation in all team volunteering events for the first quarter!
