Capital campaign manager Raphael Moore knows the troubles of both as he guides the remodel of the Hillel House. He decided at the beginning of the project that renovation of the property at 328 A St. would not move forward until the necessary finances were in place.

“We went into battle mode,” Moore said. “We got the troops together and started voting. We had a really good campaign.”
