CDPHP employees raise $40,000 and build Habitat home

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. – CDPHP employees helped to build a home with Habitat for Humanity Capital District on Saturday.

The building began at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday at 204 Sheridan Avenue in Albany.

"Build Day" has marked the end of a fundraising campaign which lasted through 2013. CDPHP employees raised more than $40,000 for Habitat and Capital Region Sponsor-A-Scholar.

The two organizations work as partners to provide homes and educational opportunity for local families.

When the home is completed, it will be owned by Rushel Skein, a single mother of three who is studying to be a registered nurse. Skein's daughter is part of the Sponsor-A-Scholar program at Albany High School.
