A team from JK Design, a full-service advertising agency with offices in Hillsborough and New York City, spent the day recently working on Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity’s 50th home in Franklin Township, Somerset County.
According to JK Design founders Jerry and Barbara Kaulius, “we created the JK Gives Back Program in hopes that our employees will be inspired to continue volunteering and giving back to the community.” The program grants each employee one day off a year to work at a non-profit organization of their choice.
This is the fourth time JK Design has participated in a Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity Build Day. The JK Design crew worked alongside future homeowner, Evonne Awadalla, who – like all Habitat for Humanity homeowners – is actively participating in the building of her home. Everyone benefits.
Martin Jones, senior art director at JK Design, said, “It’s tremendous to do something for someone else, to know you’re helping a family.”
Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, non-profit housing ministry that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities, and hope. We are dedicated to eliminating substandard housing in Somerset and Hunterdon Counties through constructing, rehabilitating, and preserving homes.
