Each year, Huber fully sponsors at least one home build in partnership with Habitat for Humanity International (Habitat) as part of our expanded community engagement initiative, Huber Helps. Construction of the third “Huber House” began in Livingston, New Jersey, in January and will continue throughout 2020. Huber is working with Habitat of Greater Newark, which serves Essex, Hudson and Union counties.
Employees from the Huber Corporate office in Edison, New Jersey, volunteered to assist with the build on January 21 and February 13. Additional build days will take place throughout the year, giving the Huber team more opportunities to help their neighbors achieve affordable homeownership. Prior to this build beginning, Edison employees helped finish other Habitat homes in Livingston.
Habitat of Greater Newark created the video below to recognize the Company’s contributions of both funding and Huber Engineered Woods (HEW) building materials, including ZIP System® products. Huber was also honored to receive one of eight Golden Hammer awards from Habitat of Greater Newark in November of 2019, celebrating our commitment to the Habitat partnership.
