Sponsor a Stud

September 20, 2022

Sponsor a Stud | Funds raised will support our Veteran Build Home in Woodbury 

9/20/22 Update: Thanks to our Sponsor the Stud Campaign we’ve raised over $7,800 for our Veteran Build and have 215 personalize studs being used to build the Habitat home in Woodbury! 

Sponsor a stud and leave your mark on a veteran’s house in Woodbury. It takes over 300 studs to build a Habitat home. Stud sponsorships are open to anyone – businesses, groups, organizations, schools, YOU… the possibilities are endless! You may want to place your company logo, write a message, draw a picture, or simply sign your name. Thanks to our “stud”, Ray Kratz of Ray Kratz: Allstate Insurance located in Deptford, Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity is 1 of 6 nonprofits benefitting from the 15th Annual Dancing with the Gloucester County Stars hosted by the Greater Woodbury Chamber of Commerce.

Here’s how it works: 

  • Purchase your stud(s) here >>
  • Pick up your stud(s) at the ReStore or at Ray Kratz All State OR if you asked us to design it, we are on it! 
  • All studs need to be turned into All State or Habitat by 9/23
  • Then, we take it from there! We will use your stud(s) at our Veteran Build in Woodbury! 

Meet our “Stud”


Ray is the Agency Owner of Kratz Financial Services in Deptford. As an Allstate exclusive agent in Deptford, he has served the Gloucester County area since 2018. He is a member of the Rotary Club of Deptford, and the Greater Woodbury Chamber of Commerce. Ray is a longtime supporter of Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity as a golf outing sponsor and a volunteer at the job sites.

About Dancing with the Gloucester County Stars: DWTGCS held its first dancing competition 15 years ago, mimicking the hit show “Dancing with the Stars,” with the goal to raise money for local charities. The event, hosted by the Greater Woodbury Chamber of Commerce, is now entering its 15th year with a big goal in mind. The way the contest works is there are six dancers who are dancing for a nonprofit organization located in and serving Gloucester County. Each dancer is also working with a professional dancer, just like the TV show. 

Thank you to our Sponsors & Donors!

Habitat for Humanity partner families benefit in many ways from the financial support of sponsorships, and sponsors are enriched by the experience of supporting hard working low- moderate income families who simply seek a hand up, and not a hand out, in the construction of a new home. Donations provide financial resources to pay for the construction materials for homes in Gloucester County. To donate towards our Veteran Build visit https://gc-habitat.org/donate/
