Ameriprise Financial Services Joins Habitat Bergen for Little Ferry Build

Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County (Habitat Bergen) recently hosted a team of fifteen volunteers from Ameriprise Financial Services of Saddle Brook, NJ.

The Ameriprise team volunteered on their second team build, joining Habitat Bergen’s continuing efforts to rebuild following the damages sustained by Little Ferry homeowners by Superstorm Sandy in October 2012. In the eight hour volunteer day, Ameriprise volunteers painted the entire first floor of a house, constructed door hinges and installed doors to help restore three Little Ferry homes.


“We had a great time working together as a TEAM and care about helping to restore these homes that were affected by Hurricane Sandy. We look forward to continuing our efforts next year,” said Team Leader Alexis Gerasimow, Ameriprise Financial Services Sr. Field Assistant.

“Habitat Bergen is excited to see the Ameriprise team back on our sites once again,” said Jacey Raimondo, Habitat Bergen Executive Director. “They arrived on our job site ready to get a substantial day’s work completed in order make an impact and contribute to our progress in Little Ferry and they accomplished their goal.”

About Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County

The goal of Habitat Bergen is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the face of the earth by working in partnership with people in need.  Using volunteer labor and donated funds and materials, Habitat Bergen builds or rehabilitates simple, decent houses and sells them to low-income families at cost, but with no interest added. Habitat Bergen is a people-to-people partnership, which joins all of us together regardless of race, nationality, religion, or socioeconomic status. That partnership begins with the homeowner families (partner families).  Habitat Bergen is not a giveaway program, but a joint venture in which those who benefit from the housing ministry are involved in the work at various levels. They help with the construction of their own home, as well as the houses of their neighbors. For more information, visit www.habitatbergen.org
