BRIDGEPORT POLICE BUILD NEW HOME WITH HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

 

Bridgeport, CT -- On November 5th, 2019, the Bridgeport Police Department partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County for “build day.”   Chief Perez attended the event and joined ten police officers to assemble the new home at 171 Wessels Street. The family selected to live in this new house built through a community partnership with the Bridgeport Police Department look forward to settling into the home in 2020.  

Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County CEO, Cathy Collins said, “When a family purchases a Habitat for Humanity home, they are making an investment in this community. Habitat CFC is dedicated to supporting our homeowners and their neighbors in improving the quality of life in the places that they call home.”

The Bridgeport Police Department and Habitat look forward to continuing the partnership to positively impact the community with future projects. Captain Porter of the Bridgeport Police Department stated, "This was an awesome event and display of giving back to the community by the Bridgeport Police Department’s School Resource Officers. One of the keys to crime fighting is helping communities to build stable neighborhoods, and that's exactly what Habitat for Humanities is doing.”

Event organizer for the police department, Officer Reyes stated, “It was amazing seeing everyone working together and have fun while serving a wonderful cause.” If anyone is interested in volunteering for Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County, they can use the link below.
