Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County
April 8, 2013

I started doing some volunteer work at Habitat Pinellas about 18 months ago, being somewhat retired from Corporate America. I had been exposed to Habitat in Columbus Ohio when our Rotary Club worked on completing a couple of homes for Habitat there. I had served for many years in Big Brothers Big Sisters and wanted to make a contribution to the wonderful work Habitat does for deserving , needy individuals in our community and across America.

I have found their leadership to be focused and engaging, and a group of achievers that are having a real impact on housing needs in Pinellas County. They are improving the quality of life for many. The process of managing the equity contributon of those deserving families, is very memaningful for our community.

I spend a few hours each week at the retail " ReStore" operation where the staff efforts are focused, and the center is an effective focal point for community donations that contribute to the achievement of cost effective housing. In addition, the center makes a strong community statement with "recycling" in a very meaningful way.

It has been rewarding in my small way of assisting the community by working with this excellent organization.
