Bridgewater's Green Planet Band Donates to Habitat for Humanity


BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The Green Planet Band, Bridgewater's local rock band, raised and donated $500 to the Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief fund through Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity.

The band was in Austin, Texas, when Hurricane Harvey made its way through the state, so they saw firsthand how devastating it was. At that point, they decided to save up their tips to give to hurricane relief.

"We are grateful to our fans and thankful to the venues who supported our quest to raise $500," the members of the band said. "We are happy to see people pitching in to re-build."
