Wells Fargo Sponsorship Helps Morris Habitat
Morris Habitat for Humanity recently received a generous sponsorship from long time supporter, Wells Fargo. The $20,000 will go to the Willow Street project in Morristown; the third duplex to be built on this street. One unit will have 2 bedrooms, the other 3 bedrooms. Each unit will have a garage. Both homes will be ENERGY STAR certified for energy efficiency. The homes will have a 30-year deed restriction that allows modest equity upon resale, but mandates that they be sold to other qualifying low-income families.
