Opening The Door To A New Future




It’s been just over a month since Bobbi Craft and her four boys opened the doors to their future in their new Habitat for Humanity home. The modular home was built by the New Brunswick Community College in Saint Andrews and placed on its foundation in Grand Bay-Westfield with building materials donated by J.D. Irving, Limited.

“Habitat believed in me when I didn't even believe in myself. I had so many doors closed on me.  Habitat was the first time that I had heard 'yes', and it was yes by complete strangers" says Bobbi Craft. "It would have never been possible without JDI being a major sponsor for Habitat, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we are forever grateful."

Habitat for Humanity delivers a life-changing future for the deserving families.  There is no place like home, and supporting this kind of positive change is important to us in the communities where we live and work.  It is also very special to our amazing employee volunteers who participate in these builds," said Mary Keith, Vice President Communications.



“As we bring these families in partnership toward a completed home you can really see where they start to see the light, in some respects, at the end of that tunnel for them.  We couldn’t do it without the dedicated support of companies like J.D. Irving, Limited,” said Kevin Perry, CEO of Habitat for Humanity in the Saint John Region.
