Broadway stars, writers, musicians and producers donned hard hats and dedicated a day to making a difference by building affordable homes for deserving families with Habitat for Humanity – New York City (Habitat-NYC) as part of Broadway Builds on Monday, Sept. 24.
Broadway volunteers spent a day helping revitalize eight homes in a multi-family building in Bedford- Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Together, they painted and landscaped the Jefferson Avenue Residences and helped promote Habitat for Humanity – New York City’s work creating affordable homeownership opportunities for low-income families.
The event’s co-chairs included Jordan Roth, Daryl Roth, Michael Cerveris, Stephen Belber, Emily Bergl and Broadway Serves.[ Also Read: Get Ready for the Connected Home of the Future ]
“We’re thrilled to have so many members of the Broadway community spend their day helping Habitat- NYC build homes for deserving families in Brooklyn,” said Rachel Hyman, acting executive director for Habitat for Humanity – New York City. “We’re appreciative of their hard work and commitment to service and volunteerism.”
Habitat for Humanity – New York City is stated to be the largest builder of Habitat homes in the Northeast, and thousands of volunteers build with Habitat-NYC each year. Each homebuyer contributes at least 200 volunteer hours as part of their partnership.
