CAPE GAZETYE, Friday, October 10 - October 16, 1997. 29 Sussex CHEER capital campaign nears milestone halfway mark Major contributions to the Capi- tal Campaign of Sussex County Senior Services, Inc. (CHEER) have raised the building fund to $1,374.328, the nonprofit agency announced last week. Charlene Hubert, coordinator for the campaign to raise funds for a new multipurpose community and adult day-care center, said a recent gift of $200,000 by the Community Redevelopment Fund pushed the campaign total near the $1.5 million mark. The award was the third from the Community Redevelopment Fund, for a total of $725,000. The cost of the project is esti- mated at $3 million. The new fa- cility will be built on 15 acres at the intersection of county roads 9 and 319 in Georgetown. Hubert and the Capital Cam- paign Committee have tried dozens of ways to raise funds in the past two years. Fundraisers have ranged from raffles to flea markets, special appeals to busi- nesses, sales of collector' s baskets and writing grant applications. "In theearly part of the drive we concentrated on CHEER employ- ee, the CHEER board of directors, CHEER volunteers and other peo- ple close to the organization," Hu- bert said. "They came through for us with flying colors, and now we're reaching out more to the community. We're making ap- peals to businesses in Sussex County and individual residents." Last year, Millsboro Auto Mart raised $2,640 by donating $40 each for 66 cars sold in a special fundraiser for the building fund. Hubert said the key to the suc- cess of the drive is service provid- ed by CHEER for more than 12,000 seniors in the county. The mission is "to promote and main- tain the highest quality of life and independence by developing and providing services that meet the continuing needs of our senior cit- izens 50 and over." "The key word is 'indepen- dence,' "Hubert said. "Our goal is to help seniors remain where they most want to be, at home." Banks, Delaware foundations and the public sector have been a major source of support for the campaign from its start. Paul H. Mylander, president and chairman of the board of Delaware National Bank, has headed the Capital Campaign Committee since the beginning. Delaware National Bank has contributed $25,000. "Most of the banks with offices in Sussex County have made ma- jor contributions," Hubert said. "The banks account for more than 10 percent of the money raised by the campaign so far. Foundations have given $465,000 and the pub- lic sector, $725,000, which has made a major impact on the cam- paign." The project has also been approved for a $1 million Rural Economic and Community Devel- opment loan. Also working on the CHEER drive is Bud Clark of Insurance Unlimited. Clark is vice chairman of the Capital Campaign Commit- tee and Chairman of the Building Committee. Rounding out the committee are Harold L. Sclatcher of County Bank, banking; Lt. Gov. Ruth Ann Minner, honorary chair; Roland Derrickson and Donald Lynch, co-chairs poultry and agriculture; Joseph A. Kol- lock Jr., manufacturing; Steve Pepper, professional; Tom White, large retail/wholesale; David Wharton, treasurer; and Helen Kruger, community. The current drive for individual givers has a personal touch. Donors who make a $100 contri- bution honor a loved one by hav- ing a brick engraved with his or her name. The new center will be located in Georgetown, although it will serve the entire county. Re- cently, letters were mailed by Kruger to residents in the George- town area, inviting them to make a pledge or "buy a brick." Since 1995, CHEER's Building Fund Drive has been represented at all kinds of fairs, celebrations and public gatherings. "Everyone we meet expresses support," Hu- bert said. "They want to be on the team, and we're here to help them become part of it." Those interested in obtaining information should contact Hubert at 856-5187. Paul H. Mylander, president and chairman of the board of Delaware National Bank and campaign chairman of the CHEER Capital Campaign Committee, adds to the driver thermometer on the CHEER billboard at the building site.
