The Janssen Pharmaceuticals Architecture and Integration Team shown here with the tools they put together into kits for three new Morris Habitat for Humanity homeowners. This "teaming" exercise was the community service part of a 3-day conference at Janssen Pharmaceuticals. Working from a "wish list" of tools, each team had 30 minutes in Home Depot to assemble the kits. Janssen Pharmaceuticals donated the gift cards used to purchase the tools. Thanks to the efforts of this group three Morris Habitat families will now be prepared for doing basic repairs in their new homes.
