Habitat Choptank has named local Realtor Chuck Mangold, Jr. as its Business Partner of the Year for 2016. An associate broker with Benson and Mangold Real Estate, Mangold has lent his time and service to help further the Habitat mission in Dorchester and Talbot Counties over the last 10 years.
“This award recognizes those businesses that are long-term partners and have provided significant support to our affordable home ownership program,” explained executive director Nancy Andrew at Habitat’s recent annual meeting. “Chuck is just one of those people who are always willing to lend a hand plus his skills and contacts are especially meaningful for our mission.” Mangold served two terms on the Habitat Choptank Board. “While he retired off the Board in 2013, his support and generosity toward the affiliate have not waivered.” He routinely offers his services to help Habitat acquire property for redevelopment, he has introduced the affiliate to possible home buyers and future Board members, he helped secure leases for the ReStore, and most recently, he joined Habitat’s Corporate Advisory group.
“Habitat Choptank is one organization in our community that truly helps people change their lives for the better,” Mangold said in explaining what motivates him to stay involved. “The quality houses they build are important and so is the support and education that the staff and volunteers provide to the home buyers.”
