Volunteer Spotlight

We asked, “What do you like about volunteering with Habitat for Humanity ReStore?” And, here’s what our volunteers had to say:

 

mick-smith-john-ridder-and-david-heatherDave (right) has volunteered with ReStore for over 5 years! Dave likes that every day is different, “you never know what’s going to roll in”.  Dave says; “it’s nice to give back but it’s also nice to come in and have purpose, to get out of the house for a while and socialize with others”. Dave, John & Mick are more than just ReStore volunteers, they’ve become good friends.  Mick (left) has volunteered for over 6 years and John (middle) 6 months.

don-youngDon is a new ReStore volunteer and says he likes the variety of work.  He’s “apprenticing” under ReStore Studio volunteer Dave and is enjoying watching and learning a lot from Dave. The ReStore is a great way to meet new people and build friendships that will last a lifetime.
