New Jersey-based Kuiken Brothers Company recently joined other businesses participating in Paterson Habitat for Humanity’s 2017 Corporate Challenge, a three-week event where corporations from the tri-state area send volunteers to build on construction sites.
The supplier of residential and commercial building materials volunteered 65 employees over the course of four days to help frame two new townhouses. Kuiken Brothers has been partners with Habitat for Humanity for more than 30 years.
“We’ve always been part of the shelter industry,” said President Doug Kuiken. “That is the basis of a very strong relationship and a natural fit with Paterson Habitat.”
Paterson Habitat, an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, partners with low-income families to help them build and buy new homes of their own and renovates existing homes. The organization also works with community partners to revitalize whole neighborhoods. Paterson Habitat’s mission is sustained by financial donations and the work of its construction volunteers, who have provided homeownership opportunities to over 265 families since 1984.
