Mt. Olive, NJ ( HHNTV.org ) Although the weather was gloomy, atmosphere for Morris Habitat for Humanity at Budd Lake, NJ was anything but. Volunteers, devoting time from their busy schedules, were more than eager to come together for a greater cause. John McLaughlin, a soon-to-be resident with his wife and four young children, was extremely thankful  and appreciative for the support and assistance of the long term Friday Faithful and a newly formed Women's Build Team led by Peggy Melvin, a retired school teacher &  Jill Mills, an elementary school librarian and 40 year Morris County resident.

Melvin and Mills dedicated their spare time yesterday to assist their community in need and have hopes to build a bigger women's team with Morris Habitat for Humanity to help John McLaughlin and his family get into his Budd Lake Home sooner than later. Driven by faith, they each believe they are helping the greater good by building homes; as their Heavenly Father too, had carpentry experience. “It’s one thing to simply give money for a cause, but it’s another to actually get hands-on. Especially working alongside the home owner too makes it that more rewarding”, said Peggy Melvin.

John, an auto technician at a local car dealership, has struggled to afford a stable place to live for his four daughters and wife was arguably the most appreciative person there. His destiny, thanks to Morris Habitat for Humanity, is that their family will be proud homeowners at Budd Lake, NJ. After moving his eldest daughter through two prior schools and worrying about if they’ll still have a safe place to live in, he is eager to be a part of a stable, secure community and put down family roots. McLaughlin mentioned that an elderly gentleman across the street is especially eager to have children in the neighborhood.

I am extremely thankful for Morris County Habitat for Humanity. It would have taken a very long time to afford a house, if it wasn’t for them. It’s a wonderful thing that they do.” Reflecting on the impact it, John proclaimed that once he moves into his finished home: “[The experience] has motivated me to go and help to volunteer on my time; and to go and help others build."
