Past CHMMunity® Events

Parker Trail Maintenance - October 14, 2017

AHMP-NJ members met up at High Point State Park to clean-up part of the Parker Loop.  The full loop is an 11.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Montague, NJ.  Our team concentrated on about 1 mile of the trail.

We successfully cleared the trail of undergrowth and fallen logs and timber.  Along the way, we found some wildlife and collected 2 bags of garbage.  We accomplished the clean-up in around 4 ½ hours and had an exciting, entertaining and productive morning.

Habitat for Humanity ReStore
February 11, 2012

Habitat’s ReStore resale outlets sell reusable and surplus building materials to the public
While every ReStore outlet is a little different, most focus on home improvement goods like furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances.

ReStore resale outlets accept donated goods which are sold to the general public at a fraction of the retail price. The proceeds help local Habitat affiliates fund the construction of Habitat homes within their communities.

Promoting reuse and recycling

ReStore resale outlets provide an environmentally and socially responsible way to keep good, reusable materials out of the waste stream while providing funding for Habitat’s community improvement work.
