Building Homes and Hope

Capital District Physicians’ Health Plan (CDPHP) employees wrapped up a year of fundraising for the 2013 Charity of Choice campaign, bringing in $41,000 for Habitat for Humanity Capital District and Capital Region Sponsor-A-Scholar. The two charities have partnered to provide hard-working, lower-income families with a chance to own a home and prepare their children for high school graduation and higher education. During the year-long initiative, employees participated in walks, flower and greenery sales, departmental contests, bowling and comedy nights, all with the goal of raising money and awareness for the two organizations. Employees also volunteered at Habitat’s Sheridan Hollow build site in Albany.
