How SCORE Helped: 

Comments from Jan Holmstrup, Executive Director of Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity:

"We’re so grateful to have the expertise of your affiliate members, Maryanne Guenther, Alan Haveson and William Tarlow, and are so pleased to be partnering with the local SCORE affiliate.  My Dad gained great pleasure and satisfaction from his time as a SCORE volunteer after his retirement 25 years ago.

Alan and Maryanne provided great guidance and encouragement in the early days of our ReStore project advising us on the business plan and best practices in marketing, operations and volunteer engagement.  Maryanne continues to be a great resource to us in planning and implementing the marketing and advertising plans. About eight months ago, we hit the jackpot again when Maryanne introduced Bill Tarlow with a non-profit resale operation and his business connections, Bill  skills and expertise are a perfect fit and just what we need. He advised us on the location, lease terms and connected us to a great deal on a truck to pick-up donations.

Maryanne and Bill continue to be invaluable resources to us as we get the ReStore off the ground. "
