Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County, based in Oradell, welcomed Environetics, an architecture, interior design, engineering, and planning firm located in Englewood Cliffs, to help the affiliate rebuild Hurricane Sandy victims’ homes in Little Ferry. In addition, Environetics donated $1,950 to the affiliate’s “Repair. Rebuild. ReStore.” efforts in Little Ferry, as well.
“The opportunity to assist a home owner whose home was devastated by Hurricane Sandy was truly a humbling experience," Hans P. Erdenberger, President of Environetics said. "Our office volunteers worked tirelessly to help repair and restore this home, which has stood vacant since the storm."
Erdenberger said that the ability to discuss Sandy and the impact that the storm had on homeowners directly with the home owner helped to bring their understanding and experience to a different level.
"I strongly feel that everyone who can should volunteer for an organization like Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County. We can make a difference," he concluded.
Jacey Raimondo, Executive Director of Habitat Bergen said they were thrilled to have Environetics employees lend a professional hand to their efforts in Little Ferry.
“Habitat Bergen is making progress in the Hurricane Sandy affected areas and we value the much needed support from our surrounding community,” Raimondo said.
