Konsyl Pharmaceuticals is investing in affordable home ownership in Talbot County through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity Choptank. The Easton-based company has been making high-quality health care products for over 80 years. Konsyl manufactures natural dietary products for Over the Counter pharmaceuticals and supplements, plus the SITZMARKS® medical device. These products are supplied all over the world to support daily health and wellness.
Recognizing the importance of affordable home ownership for both it’s employees and the community as a whole, Konsyl has generously stepped forward with a contribution for Habitat’s new corporate giving program. “The longevity of this company has a lot to do with our people,” says Frank Gunsallus, general manager. “We live here and work here and want to give back to this community.”
As of July 1, 2015, Habitat Choptank is moving forward with a new strategic plan to expand its mission. The plan, which was developed over a period of two years with input from over 100 citizens, identifies quality, energy efficient, affordable housing as a fundamental matter for residents and for neighborhoods. It will run through 2019 and is aimed at expanding the organization’s impact through increased home production. The goal is to grow from four homes built or rehabbed a year to eight.
“Increasing the numbers of homes completed each year means increasing every resource: more volunteers, home buyers, land, and funding,” explains Nancy Andrew, executive director for Habitat Choptank. The nonprofit home builder has launched a corporate sponsor program in order to give business partners a way to actively participate in the Habitat mission and be recognized for their investment in this revitalization work around the Choptank region. Benefits of corporate sponsorship include alignment with a strong, trusted non-profit brand, recognition in marketing materials and on construction sites, employee team building opportunities with volunteer build days, and participation in home dedications and other key Habitat events. Konsyl has also hosted on-site educational opportunities for employees to learn about Habitat Choptank’s affordable home purchasing program.
