For Father’s Day this year Danielle Dourmashkin and her family planned to celebrate the day by volunteering for Morris Habitat for Humanity.
By working on a repair project or helping to build a new home, the family is able to give something special back to its community. Morris Habitat welcomes volunteers. Joining in on one of the builds or rehabilitation projects is easy. Just contact Morris Habitat at 973-891-1934 and speak with Stephanie Sayki, director of volunteer services.
Even if a power tool was never held, that’s not a problem. The Morris Habitat staff will help train volunteers on site.
Whatever the occasion, a birthday, anniversary, family reunion, bridal party, bachelor or bachelorette party, school reunion or other special event, this gift will keep on giving to a worthy family.

Founded in 1985, Morris Habitat for Humanity advocates for and builds affordable housing to enhance lives and strengthen the community. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Morris Habitat builds new homes and provides home repair services to income eligible families. Morris Habitat has served 400 households though home ownership opportunities, home preservation and international home building programs. Of these, 89 homes were home repair projects and 74 new homes were built, as well. In addition, proceeds from the ReStore, opened May 2007, have funded 22 homes and diverted almost 5,800 tons of useable material out of landfills. The store is located in Randolph.
