Five North Jersey residents, members of Paterson's Habitat for Humanity, nicknamed Team Thailand, have spent this week working in Thailand with the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project. The volunteers, Pam and Peter McBride, Craig Hoogstra, Nancy Devries and Bill Neumann, joined 3,000 Habitat volunteers to build 82 homes in the Mekong River region.
