Morris Habitat for Humanity is looking for a few special people willing to help dedicated veterans who have bravely served our country but are in dire need of housing. Two new single family homes that have been designated for veterans are currently under construction on vacant lots on Harding Avenue in Dover. The goal is to have the homes completed by April 2017, but help is needed to meet this goal. During the week of November 7-11 there will be a concerted push to move these homes closer to completion. "We are excited to participate in Veterans Build Week," said Blair Bravo, CEO of Morris Habitat. "This is a great opportunity for people of all skill levels to come together to help veterans and their families in need of better housing." You or your group or local business can help address the need for affordable housing for veterans throughout the community during Morris Habitat for Humanity's Veterans Build Week. All are welcome--no special skills are needed. Volunteers will be trained at the site. To donate or volunteer during Veterans Build Week, contact Director of Volunteer Services, Stephanie Sakai at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 973-891-1934 X103 ______________________________________________________________________________ About Morris Habitat for Humanity: Morris Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles by building homes, communities and hope.
