Newburgh Habitat dedicates 90th house

The Viridiana family is ready to move into their new home

NEWBURGH – Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh reached a milestone on Friday with the dedication of their 90th completed home.

Lumber from the 2016 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is built into the walls of this house at 30 South Miller Street.

This is the third time a Rockefeller tree has become part of Habitat home in Newburgh.

“We are so excited to be marking the milestone of our 90th completed house today,” said Habitat Executive Director Cathy Collins. “It is fitting that the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is being recycled and given new life as part of this house, as this house is one of five gut rehabs that Habitat Newburgh is giving new life on this block.”

“Every house has its own story – how it was built, who constructed it, the family that calls it home. And for this house, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh’s 90th home, which M&T Bank was proud to sponsor, its story is made extra special not only because it’s a milestone, but also because of the lumber used inside it,” said M&T’s Regional President Mark Stella.
