From 8:30 a.m. to noon on March 3, Morris Habitat and Lowe’s call on women across Morris County to volunteer on a 6-plex on Main Street in SuccasunnaHabitat for Humanity’s Women Build program brings women together from all walks of life to learn construction skills and to help families build strength, stability and independence through housing. It also spotlights the homeownership challenges faced by women and empowers women to take action and advocate for an affordable place to live in Morris County.

More than 6,000 women construction volunteers will unite in the U.S., India and Canada this week to build up their communities with Habitat homeowners. Sunday, May 8, is International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and marking a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.

Everyone is welcome! No construction experience needed! Volunteers will get a t-shirt, lunch, and construction training.

Hammer for Heroes, Thu May 2 – Fri May 3

Building a Home for a Veteran:

You can’t have the land of the free without a home for the Brave.

Thank you to everyone who helped make WDHA & WMTR’s Hammer for Heroes 2019 a success! Volunteers from businesses and the community converged on the Beyer Ford dealership in Morristown on May 2 and 3 to frame walls for the future home of veteran Daniel Pope, his wife and three daughters. They will reside at our Main Street project in Roxbury Township.

Radio stations WDHA and WMTR not only broadcast live from the Morristown build site each day, but their staff also picked up hammers and built wall panels themselves.

Daniel Pope in uniform

Daniel Pope was in the first ground unit to enter Iraq in the Iraq War in 2003. He was just 17 years old when he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps with permission of a parental waiver. Daniel’s first day of boot camp was 9/11, and he graduated on Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. The former Secretary of Defense, General James Mattis, led his unit’s charge into Iraq.
