Gala Celebration: Paterson & Beyond
Celebrating Paterson Habitat's accomplishments and honoring Railroad Construction Co., Inc.
On Thursday, September 22nd, Paterson Habitat supporters from across the state gathered together at the Westmount Country Club for an incredibly special evening.
Visit this link to watch our interview with Railroad Construction Co., Inc. and hear Mustapha and Haja's story.
Together we honored Railroad Construction Co., Inc. (RCC) with the Millard Fuller Award. The philanthropic spirit at RCC is part of the company fabric and is written into the company charter. The spirit permeates throughout the team at RCC as they generously volunteer their own time and resources to many causes. We are extremely grateful for RCC’s continued support and dedication to the Paterson community.
We also shared the story of Mustapha and Haja, who recently became Habitat homeowners on Clinton Street in Paterson. We visited with them several weeks ago to hear more about their road to homeownership and how the life-changing opportunity to purchase a home of their own has changed their lives forever.
Throughout the evening our mission remained the focus as we raised funds to continue our work of building safe, stable, and affordable homes in our local community. We were excited to end the evening on a high note with the announcement of our brand refresh and name change to Passaic County Habitat for Humanity. This change, which begins January 2023, more accurately reflects our geographic service area and commitment to serving Passaic County as a whole.
We again extend a special thank you to our gala event sponsors, supporters, and attendees.
