Hammers for Habitat - Times Square Build

timessquare.jpgOn March 19, over 50 volunteers from Lowe’s and our Monmouth County affiliate journeyed to NYC to build a house in the middle Times Square. The opportunity was a product of a national partnership with Lowe’s and Habitat for Humanity.

Lowe’s recently renewed its commitment to Habitat for Humanity International with a five-year, $23.5 million donation that will bring Lowe’s total contributions to more than $63 million since 2003.

Our Times Square project was one of 10 home builds that took place across the country to celebrate Lowe’s longstanding partnership with Habitat for Humanity and kick off “Hammers for Habitat,” a nationwide volunteer drive to mobilize 100,000 new Habitat volunteers this year in support of Habitat’s goal of serving one million people annually by 2018. Builds also took place in Atlanta, Baton Rouge, La., Charlotte, N.C., Denver, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Seattle and St. Louis.

The house was deconstructed on March 21, but will find a permanent home in Sea Bright, NJ for a new Habitat family that will return home after months of being displaced by Hurricane Sandy. More than 90 volunteers participated in the Times Square build – framing, assembling and disassembling the two-bedroom home – that will be re-assembled in Sea Bright after the foundation is set.

Here is a listing of videos, pictures and press from the March event:
