NORTH PASSIC, N.J. -- A long-vacant Upper Greenwood Lake home will be rebuilt with the help from the Morris Habitat for Humanity (MHH) and Paterson Habitat for Humanity, according to NorthJersey.com.
The home will be totally rebuilt with donations, city funds reserved for affordable housing, and volunteer labor and when completed, given to a low-income family, reported NorthJersey.com.
This is the first partnership between the two group, added NorthJersey.com.
The 0.23-acre house site, was donated to MHH by Wells Fargo Bank; the bank is also donating $10,000 toward the project, said NorthJersey.com.
