Habitat for Humanity to Assist Sandy Victims

Habitat for Humanity launched its first-ever fleet of Habitat Mobile Response Units in Atlanta this week to assist communities in New York and New Jersey recovering from Hurricane Sandy. It was announced Friday, Dec. 21.

Chevrolet donated a total of 24 Express vans, which were driven from Atlanta to the New York metro area. The fleet stopped in Charlotte, N.C., to be specially outfitted with tools and equipment provided by Lowe’s and power tools provided by the Robert Bosch Tool Corporation.

After arriving in New York and New Jersey on Tuesday, the fleet is being deployed to a dozen Habitat affiliates in the greater New York metropolitan area to assist Habitat’s repair efforts, including critical home repairs, rehabilitations/reconstruction, weatherization and new construction.

The mobile response units are part of Habitat’s “Repair. Rebuild. Restore.” This effort includes a range of services that will address both the short-term and long-term need for safe and decent housing.

Habitat for Humanity International is a global nonprofit Christian housing organization.
