Event organizers from the SU Foundation, Inc. recently donated $6,093.96 to Habitat for Humanity of Wicomico County from the 2012 Century. Contributions have topped $120,000 over the years.

“We are grateful for the support from the Century,” said Joan H. Mulvanny, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Wicomico County. “Riders who come from across the U.S. are helping make the American dream of homeownership possible for families right here in our area. The University and its students have a longstanding commitment to Habitat, providing funds to build homes and also helping with construction.”

Dozens of other community nonprofits have also benefitted from Century proceeds. For more information call 410-543-6030 or visit the SU Web site at www.salisbury.edu.
