In addition to the box truck, the McMullens also supplied Habitat Bergen with plumbing materials and various pieces of furniture. The supplies donated by Jayson and Karyn will be used to continue advancing Superstorm Sandy restoration projects in Little Ferry, NJ.
As Habitat Bergen continues to make progress in preparation for its ReStore, expected to open in 2015, Jayson’s truck will play a crucial role transporting furniture and supplies from homes, to the warehouse, and finally to Habitat Bergen’s future showroom.
“Having lived a blessed life based on serving and helping others, we wanted to go out with a bang and we didn't give it a second thought. Knowing the good works of Habitat, we decided to bless others with what allowed us to successfully get to retirement,” said Jayson McMullen, Jayson Cole LLC.
“It is kind and generous families like the McMullens that enables Habitat Bergen to continue to serve the community and build decent, affordable homes. Habitat Bergen is forever grateful for the McMullen’s dedication to service and Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County,” said Jacey Raimondo, Habitat Bergen Executive Director.

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.
