Ways to Give
hammering 4 habitat (h4h)
H4H is a great fundraising and wall building event for school groups, families, and individuals. At the Paterson Museum, teams build framed walls with donated and decorated 2'x4's. These newly constructed walls will be used in upcoming home building projects. This event takes place annually in November. Visit our H4H page for more details.
Donate your gently used books to replenish the supplies at our local Free Little Libraries
commemorate your special by partnering with habitat
Ask for donations in lieu of gifts for your birthday, confirmation, or sweet 16. Read about how one boy raised over $1,000 for Paterson Habitat on his birthday.
