March 31, 2017 // Franchising.com // San Francisco and Madison, N.J. - Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate President and CEO, Sherry Chris, has joined the advisory board for New Story, a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that builds safe homes and transforms slums into thriving communities in developing countries. Chris will strengthen Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate’s support of New Story by serving a one year term as an advisory board member where she will provide strategic counsel and assist with the non-profit’s growth.
“At Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, we believe that a safe and sustainable home is the foundation of a person’s health and happiness,” said Chris. “I am honored to have been selected for this opportunity and I look forward to furthering our brand’s commitment to this cause and strengthening our support of New Story.”
Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate recently began a campaign to help New Story raise money to transform a rural shack slum in Ahuachapán, El Salvador into a beautiful, sustainable and safe community. The residents of Ahuachapán currently live in dilapidated tent structures, which makes living conditions dangerous and harmfully impacts individual health and well-being.
One hundred percent of donations to New Story raised through the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate campaign will be directly applied to the construction of the homes in Ahuachapán. During the construction of the community, all labor and materials will be sourced from the area thus effectively creating jobs and injecting capital into the local economy.
“Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate is an amazing brand that completely shares our vision and values,” said Brett Hagler, CEO and co-founder of New Story. “We are thrilled to welcome Sherry Chris to our advisory board and we are confident that her contributions will help us change the trajectory of the lives of deserving people around the world and make a positive global impact.”
