Morris County is one of New Jersey’s most affluent counties and yet, there are thousands of families living in inadequate or substandard housing because they can’t afford the area’s high prices. As a nonprofit, equal opportunity, ecumenical Christian housing ministry, we are dedicated to building decent, affordable housing with low-income families. Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need.
Becky Smith of Girl Scout Troop 80930 (Long Valley) asks for your help with her Gold Award project. “Family Time is Fun Time!” will provide tables, chairs and board/card games to help Morris Habitat families connect and bond in their new living spaces. Bring NEW board/card games for all ages to the Morris Habitat office through Monday, Sept. 15. You may also donate money to help with the purchase and refurbishment of tables and chairs. Checks made out to Girl Scout Troop 80930 may be dropped off or mailed to the Morris Habitat office.
“Spruce It Up!” offers you the chance to pick up ideas on how to transform a tired interior space, to learn how to avoid costly mistakes, and to maximize the design potential of your home or business. Members of the New Jersey chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers will provide one- or two-hour on-site consultations for $150 per hour from Monday, September 1, to Friday, October 31. Your check will be written directly to Morris Habitat, and your gift is tax-deductible as allowed by law. Details
