100.1 WJRZ's Building Homes from the Heart

100.1 WJRZ is proud to partner with Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity for our second annual, “Building Homes from the Heart” campaign.

This July 26th & 27th, join the 100.1 WJRZ airstaff and support team as they join Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity to build a house for a deserving working family in New Jersey and make the opportunity to own a decent and affordable home a dream come true.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Sponsor a WJRZ Jock!

We're putting the staff to work, sweating & swinging hammers, but the supplies don't come free. Lumber, nails, and other supplies cost money, so instead of asking you to bring it to us, the donation goes to help provide the materials so we can have it ready on build day! CLICK HERE to make a donation.

Become a corporate sponsor of the event.

If you have some swing with your boss (or if you are the big boss) then we’d love to put your business’ name up in lights as a big sponsor of this incredible event.  CLICK HERE to email us with your info or call 732-681-9591 and ask for Christina.


THE RUNDOWN:

  • July 26 & 27,  100.1 WJRZ and Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity will have a work-site at the Ocean County Mall to construct panels for a home.
  • Once the panels are assembled, they will transported to a lot in Bayville, where the home will be completed.
  • When the house is finished, we will have a dedication for the home.

This is an opportunity for members of the community to help a deserving neighbor.

Help us build a home from the heart!

ABOUT NORTHERN OCEAN HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

Our Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing through constructing, rehabilitating, and preserving homes. We advocate for fair and just housing policies and providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman, and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

Our Mission:

Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity is a Christian organization that embraces people of all faiths working in partnership to build decent, affordable housing and to create healthy, vibrant and self-sufficient communities.  Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.  Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Habitat Affordable Housing

Habitat houses are affordable because there is no profit included in the sale price and no interest is charged on the mortgage. The family’s monthly mortgage payments go into a revolving fund which is used to build more houses.  This is not a give-away program. In addition to monthly mortgage payments, each homeowner family invests hundreds of hours of their own labor, called “sweat equity,” into the building of their house and the houses of others.
