During the month of April, NEST will host a tool box drive to benefit the Cumberland County Habitat for Humanity organization. This nonprofit has developed housing for more than 26 families in Cumberland county, and they have started a new initiative to give these homeowners tool boxes when receiving keys to a dream.
“It’s not easy to maintain a home, but having the right tools makes a big difference,” said CEO of NEST Rob Almond. “We’re happy to help Cumberland County Habitat for Humanity and its proud new homeowners start out the right way.”
NEST will also collect tools from community residents who wish to participate in this endeavor.
“Donations will be accepted Monday through Friday at NEST headquarters, located at 500 Crescent Boulevard in Gloucester City,” said Jessica Reakus, Human Resource Specialist. Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit Christian housing ministry that has helped to build over 500,000 decent, affordable houses and served 2.5 million people worldwide. The Cumberland county chapter was founded in September of 1989. “NEST will be the first corporate partner to volunteer for this new effort in our area,” said Alyssa Velazquez of CCHFH.
“Friends and family members of our employees are encouraged to participate in light home construction or work in the CCHFH ReStore on April 25th,” said President Kellie D’Andrea. This retail outlet provides new and gently used home improvement materials at affordable prices and generates funds for CCHFH. Employees will be volunteering onsite in Vineland, NJ.
