GEORGETOWN, Del.- Dogfish Head brewery on Monday teamed up with Sussex County Habitat for Humanity to participate in its fourth annual day of service. Two hundred volunteers assisted with building brand new homes for families in need.  

According to Sussex Habitat Community Engagement Director Tom Protack, the amount of work completed in this one day of service is equal to one and a half months of work with regular volunteers.

The volunteers from Dogfish Head worked on three homes.  Two of the homes were in Georgetown and the third home was located in Seaford.  This year the event was unique because volunteers helped build the first home for a veteran.

Now this project does not get handed to the recipients for free.  Families are required to invest 250 hours of their own time in building their home.

Its estimated that these homes will be completed by September.
