 Recently, JMC employees from Parsippany lent their hands and expertise to help Morris Habitat for Humanity at the Spring Street home building project in Dover.   JMC is a general home improvement company with 36 years of experience that specializes in kitchens and baths. John MacDougall, the company owner, shared the fact that the employees had taken a vote on what charitable organization they would “give back to” in the community and felt Morris Habitat would make the best use of their talents.  Seventeen employees came out to finish outside walls, put in insulation and install windows.  MacDougall advised others interested in volunteering to understand that there are a lot of skills to be learned, but it can’t be done in one day!  Whether you are experienced or know very little about building, Morris Habitat welcomes you.  You will be taught the skills needed for that day’s work.  Morris Habitat builds all winter long and has several inside projects in the works.   

For further information about Morris Habitat or to sign up to volunteer visit: www.MorrisHabitat.org or call the office at 973-891-1934.
