Hackettstown Rotary Club volunteers on Warren County Habitat For Humanity construction site, donates $1,000

WASHINGTON, NJ (Warren County) – Warren County Habitat for Humanity (Warren County Habitat) is an organization that thrives due to its community’s contribution and support.

In September, the organization saw an enthusiastic group of volunteers from the Hackettstown Rotary Club donating their time at their construction site. The team helped the Warren County Habitat volunteer crew with the framing of their 24th home, the final home being built on Beidleman Road in Franklin Township.

They were also joined by Jaiden Fischer, Warren County Habitat’s future homeowner who will be moving in upon the home’s completion.

“[The build day] was great!,” President of the Hackettstown Rotary Club Catherine Rust said. “We all had a good time and feel like we achieved quite a lot. [Jaiden] was a pleasure to meet and work with, and it was so inspiring to be a part of that process.”

This contribution will help fund the purchasing of necessary materials to complete Jaiden’s home. Hers will be one of two homes that are set to be completed in 2024. Warren County Habitat wants to express their immense gratitude not only for the financial contribution made by the Hackettstown Rotary Club, but for getting involved directly by volunteering as well.

Warren County Habitat for Humanity relies on community support to implement and grow each of their programs. To learn more, volunteer, or join the conversation, visit, or stop into one of their two retail locations; the ReStore on Route 57, or The HUT on Belvidere Ave. Hours and directions are available on Warren County Habitat’s website.
