Members of the Black Diamond Team, David Lorenze, Murphy Holloway, and Ryan Smyth, didn’t let a little rain stop them from enjoying a great work day volunteering on April 17, 2015 with the work crew for the Mon County Habitat for Humanity. They spent the day helping the crew with the construction of new homes on Jersey Avenue in Morgantown.
Mon County Habitat for Humanity was established in 1990 and is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization dedicated to eliminating substandard housing through the construction of new homes and rehabilitation of existing homes. The organization is operated on Christian principles that promote dignity, hope and the belief that everyone should have a safe place to live.
Mon County Habitat for Humanity operates based on monetary donations, material donations and over 13,000 volunteer hours per year by individuals, churches, local company, and civic organizations. The Mon County Habitat for Humanity also operates ReStore which accepts donations of new or reusable furniture, appliances, residential and commercial furnishing and fixtures, and building materials. ReStore encourages the use of reusable items to lower the cost on building and the impact on the environment. ReStore is open to the public to purchase these donated items at thrift store prices and the proceeds are then used to further the mission of Mon County Habitat for Humanity.
