NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Bill Moye will celebrate his 100th Birthday at noon Saturday at the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store located at 659 Main Street in downtown New Rochelle.

“We are honored and have helped bill for a number of years as we have a commitment to our senior veterans as well as sour young veterans, bill is a hero, here’s to his next 100 years,” Stated Jim Killoran, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Westchester.

William Francis Moye (who has always been known as “Bill” or “Billy”), born in New Rochelle, NY on March 26, 1915 and attended New Rochelle schools, only leaving New Rochelle High School after his father’s death. He immediately went to work to help support his mother, who was just about in the middle of raising her nine children.

The few years Bill was away from New Rochelle, he proudly served his country during four campaigns in World War II.

If you’d like to bring a citation or donation that day it is welcomed. All donations will go to Bill Moye. The Mayor, City Legislator, local dignitaries, and friends of Bill Moye will be in attendance.

Habitat for Humanity of Westchester does not only build homes, but also builds hope. We’ve helped many veterans into the organization thus far, and Habitat for Humanity of Westchester is constantly working on “Welcome Home Houses.” Training programs are available to help Veterans learn to build.
