Coastal Habitat for Humanity will recognize three extraordinary community partners at the charity’s 2017 Hearts and Hammers Celebration Oct. 19.
Each of this year’s honorees have been relentless in helping the organization continue to realize its mission of building strong, safe, and self-reliant neighborhoods.
“Our community partners are critical to the sustainable impact Coastal Habitat makes in Southern Monmouth County,” said Heather Schulze, executive director. The Coaster, Pat, and Theo have all been dedicated, long-term supporters. These three civic leaders embody the spirit of our organization and the Hearts & Hammers Awards. As we mark the 5th Anniversary of Superstorm Sandy, we are proud to recognize – and celebrate – their relentless work on Coastal Habitat’s behalf. We could not be planning our 19th and 20th home dedications in Asbury Park without them.”
The casual awards reception, featuring light fare and drink from local restaurants will take place in conjunction with the Grand Opening of the charity’s new ReStore thrift store – the next generation of home goods and building materials shopping with community impact.
Maureen Mulligan, retired executive director, will also be in attendance.
