Bergen County Heroes of the Month

KGG law with Habitat for HumanityThe law office of Kantrowitz, Goldhamer & Graifman is proud to support Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County! The goal of Habitat is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the face of the earth by working in partnership with people in need.  Using volunteer labor and donated funds and materials, Habitat builds or rehabilitates simple, decent houses and sells them to low-income families at cost, but with no interest added.

Jacey Raimondo, Executive Director, was kind enough to take time out of her busy schedule to meet us at one of Habitat for Humanity’s work sites in Washington Township, New Jersey.  Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County was established in 1994 and has since built 47 homes in Bergen County!  There newest project that we visited is set to house 4 units, for 2 veterans and 2 senior citizens.

How can you help?

Habitat is always looking for more volunteers and with the weather getting nicer, it’s the perfect time!  Click here to find out more about volunteer opportunities.

If you are unable to volunteer, you can also help this excellent cause by donating new or gently used furniture to their Restore Bergen located at 121 Carver Avenue, Westwood, New Jersey 07675.  They offer FREE PICKUPS to surrounding towns which are listed in the link above.  Bergen Restore is also a great place to buy new and gently used furniture as the proceeds go straight to funding house builds and restorations!

Habitat for Humanity also holds fundraising events throughout the year such as Women in Business Networking High Tea on June 7th in Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ and their 7th Annual Golf Outing in Tenafly, NJ.
