Raritan Valley Habitat For Humanity Implementing Programs To Serve Those Impacted By Hurricane Ida
In response to the damage done from Hurricane Ida, Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity (RVHFH) is bringing people together to build homes, community and hope with the following:
- A Brush With Kindness
- ReStore Gift Card Drive
- Fill the Truck Donation Drive
- Offering free supplies to those in need
The pilot of the “A Brush with Kindness” program was in July of this year, and involved a large group of volunteers who gardened, cleaned, and provided small repairs for low- to moderate – income homeowners. RVHFH is seeking volunteers who are interested in providing relief to those suffering from hurricane damage, and who are physically able to perform home clean-ups and small repairs. For information on how to volunteer, please visit https://rvhabitat.org/individual-volunteer/.
If you or someone you know has been impacted by Hurricane Ida and would like assistance with clearing items out of the home, sanitizing, shop vacuuming, brush cleanup and other small repairs, you can find the application at www.rvhabitat.org/hurricane-ida-relief/. To return completed applications, please:

Mail completed applications to P.O. Box 330, Pluckemin, NJ 07978
Drop completed applications off in person to the Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity ReStore, at 110 North Main Street, Manville, NJ 08835
The Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity ReStore is also offering an option for shoppers to purchase ReStore gift cards for families in need. Gift cards will be distributed to these families to purchase furniture, household items and home repair items. Families and homeowners in need may also stop by the ReStore in person, where they will be offered donated home repair and relief items for free, such as shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, paper towels, and cleaning and laundry supplies.
