Newburgh Habitat Home Made Using Wood from Famous Tree
Juan Guevera and Viridiana Perez of Newburgh will be moving into their new home soon and it's built with wood from the 2016 Rockefeller Christmas Tree.
Habitat for Humanity of Newburgh and M & T Bank gave the couple the keys to their new home, making this a very special holiday for the young family. One of the cool things about this story is that, according to Spectrum News, the couple put in hundreds of hours working on other Habitat homes.
The family worked with Habitat For Humanity, putting in 400 hours of work into other people's homes to make their homeownership a reality. They had to take home ownership education classes on topics like financing, budgeting, and home maintenance.
They are just that much more prepared to be homeowners with all the extra work they put into getting this place. The house also was built with wood from the 2016 Christmas Tree that stood at Rockefeller Center. You might remember the 2015 Rock tree came from Gardiner, right here in the Hudson Valley.
