We were more than team building houses—we were making a lasting difference in a community by providing real people with a real home.
Vienna, VA (PRWEB) February 04, 2015
NT Concepts received a $10,000 prize for our selected non-profit, Youth With a Mission (YWAM), San Pedro, for their 2014 Super Service Challenge video diary chronicling a two-day housing construction in the Dominican Republic.
“We are absolutely thrilled!” said NT Concepts CEO, Michele Bolos. “This award could not benefit a finer organization, and the experience was absolutely humbling. We were more than team building houses—we were making a lasting difference in a community by providing real people with a real home.”
Under the nationwide Super Service Challenge, companies or groups of employees team up and help nonprofits win cash prizes by sharing their service project stories and collecting votes.
“We hope this will inspire and challenge other businesses to participate in pro bono and skills-based services like Homes of Hope and the 2015 Super Service Challenge, where people can work together and use their talents to make a real difference,” Michele added.
“The staff of YWAM San Pedro thanks NT Concepts for submitting your video to the Super Service Challenge and winning $10,000! This is great news for YWAM, showing the dedication of our staff and the positive effect of Homes of Hope on your company.” - Malcolm Taylor, Director, YWAM San Pedro, Dominican Republic.
