BUILDING HOMES & COMMUNITY IN CAPE MAY COUNTY
Meet the Mabry Family
Sharing a tiny rental apartment with her young son Cameron, Middle Township native Julia Mabry dreamed of a her own house – a place that Cameron could always come home to, even when he was grown. Knowing that Habitat for Humanity could provide a path to a stable future for her family, she met the rejection of her first Habitat application in 2013 not with despair, but with spirit and determination. Julia worked steadily to raise her income, to develop her employment record and to strengthen her personal finances. Finally in 2016, on her third try, Julia was accepted as a Habitat homeowner. Thanks to her commitment and perseverance, this time she stood out in an applicant
pool of over 70 families as someone with the both the qualifications and motivation to make the most of the opportunity Habitat for Humanity provides.
Wells Fargo Build Day September 26th
Twenty Wells Fargo volunteers from the local Ocean City branch, as well as from around South Jersey, grabbed hammers, power tools and hit the ground running at the Habitat construction site Tuesday September 26th. This spirited group worked side-by-side with homeowners Abigail and Angel, and Habitat Cape May veteran volunteers on framing, siding and porch building projects. Wells Fargo Foundation is sponsor of the house at 209 Reeves Street, providing $20,000 towards construction costs. We loved having this great team of men and women join us for the day, and hope they want to make a return trip soon! If your work or social group would like to try their hand at a Habitat work day, contact Community Outreach Manager Cheryl Spaulding at firstname.lastname@example.org.
