Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano, along with Habitat for Humanity of Westchester, will gather for the first-ever “Mayor’s Build Day,” Wednesday, May 9 at 12:00 PM at 7 Moquette Place, Yonkers to celebrate Habitat for Humanity’s service to the City of Yonkers the past two decades and to kick off the reconstruction of the property.
The Yonkers home at 7 Moquette Place, currently being rehabbed by Habitat for Humanity of Westchester, will be given to a Yonkers Veteran later this year. The property was in tax arrears and Yonkers City Council voted to donate it to Habitat for Humanity.
The City of Yonkers and Habitat for Humanity have worked in partnership together since 1997, restoring homes, community gardens, and providing housing for those in need, including returning veterans. Habitat for Humanity of Westchester is celebrating 30 years of service in Westchester County.
