Veterans deserve lots of support after their commitment to dangerous tours of duty overseas. On Sat., June 4, Morris Habitat for Humanity plans to hold a special event, “Hammers for Heroes,” a special build day to benefit local veterans to be held outside the Morris Habitat ReStore in Randolph, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. This family-friendly fundraiser includes activities for all ages and registration is required.
Hammer for Heroes is dedicated to veterans and veteran families.
Nathalie Figueroa of Dover is a veteran and active in the Army reserves where she serves as Military Police. She was deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 for one year, working in support of battlefield operations, and conducted area security of US Army resources and installations. She and her young son will be moving into one of the homes.
The other veteran is Ed Sartorius, who lives in Randolph with his wife and daughter. He is a veteran of the U.S. Army and is still active in the Reserves where he holds a rank of Sergeant. Sartorius had been deployed to Operation Desert Storm in 1991 and Afghanistan in 2008.
Individuals, families, friends, religious groups and corporate teams will have a special opportunity to help build walls for veterans and future veteran Habitat homeowners that are in need of affordable housing. Besides the build, there will be food, music, crafts, face painting, a bouncy house and much more.
