Mr. John - An unsung hero of our build site

Something perhaps we've taken for granted for too long is the donation of portable restroom services on our work sites.

Mr. John, of Keasbey, NJ, has been donating their services to us for years.

I found on their Web site that Habitat is one of the charities they support as a company. They donate their services not just to Millstone Basin, but to many affiliates in New Jersey. The also support other charitable endeavors.

Well done. Community support comes from so many places.
