Volunteers are a critical piece of the partnership model that makes Habitat for Humanity work. At Our Towns Habitat for Humanity, more than 2,000 volunteers work annually to support affordable housing in North Mecklenburg and Iredell Counties. Last fiscal year, volunteers contributed nearly 50,000 hours of work, valued at more than $1 million. Those hours were spent on the construction site building affordable homes; in our Habitat ReStores, sorting donations, pricing merchandise and creating product displays; providing support for fundraising events; providing snacks and goodies for other volunteers; and assisting with administrative needs in the office.
We are thankful for our volunteers every day, but once a year when Volunteer Appreciation Week rolls around (April 7-13), we like to make a special effort to call out their contributions. As we wrap up this year’s Volunteer Appreciation Week, here’s a gallery of the moments we captured!
