As a thank you gift, Habitat for Humanity resource development coordinator Stephen Sommerville recently presented a certificate of appreciation to Dorchester resident Bob Clayton for the grant.

“We are truly grateful for the ongoing efforts of the Dorchester,” said Sommerville.

“Just this fall the residents and staff raised $1,187.00 for Habitat, so the additional funds were a very pleasant surprise.”

The grant funds came from the Revera Giving program, an initiative that helps to support causes and organizations in various communities.
