Hammer for Heroes, Thu May 3 – Fri May 4

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 2018 a success! Employees of the sponsoring companies came out on May 3 and 4 to build the walls that will become a safe and stable family home for a future homeowner family.

105.5 WDHA FM broadcast live from the build site at Beyer Ford in Morristown. Their disc jockeys worked side by side with the other volunteers at each morning and afternoon build shift. A great time was had by all. We hope to you see next year with a hammer in hand!

This year’s event was dedicated to future homeowner family Tiffany Giacchino and John Freudenberg and their daughter, who will reside at our Randall Avenue project in Mine Hill. John is a veteran of the U.S. Army who served in Afghanistan.
