Habitat for Humanity Lumber Donation Made by The Fortnightly Club, Summit

August 24, 2010 at 12:01 PM

The Fortnightly Club of Summit has joined forces with Habitat for Humanity. The Fortnightly Club recently donated lumber to Morris Habitat for Humanity. The lumber will go to the ReStore Shop and to current projects. During the recent "Show House" of Twin Maples, located at 214 Springfield Avenue, Summit, an emergency stair structure was built on the exterior of the home to meet fire codes.

The Fortnightly Club is a 501c3 organization whose main focus is volunteering and giving back to the community. The City of Summit and Habitat for Humanity are embarking on a new home project in Summit.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that enables low-income people to own affordable, livable housing. Using donated materials and funds, those in need of shelter work alongside volunteers to build new homes or rehabilitate older structures.

The Fortnightly Club joins Summit in supporting Morris Habitat for Humanity by supporting the Fundraiser "Raise the Roof" Kickoff Event - Sunday, October 4, 2009, 4-7 p.m. at The Summit Grand Hotel.
