Shining Light On Our Volunteers!

It has been a busy few weeks at Hancock County Habitat for Humanity and at the center has been our amazing group of dedicated volunteers. So, let's shine some light on the generous folks of our community who have shown up to make a difference!

In April we hosted a successful Volunteer Orientation with a turnout of over 15 interested Volunteer Applicants and existing Volunteers! Over homemade blueberry muffins and coffee we talked about the history of Habitat, upcoming and ongoing projects and the different ways our volunteers can contribute.

"You don't have to lift a hammer to help!"

We learned about each individual's motivation to attend, as well as the wide

range of skills they are offering.

The skills! Wow! Electricians, teachers, contractors, scientists, engineers, video producers, marketing specialists and community members. This group did not disappoint!

From there we added members to our Repair Corps, strengthening our team of skilled people, which will help with our popular Home Safety and Accessibility program that enables older adults to age in place.

Our Construction Committee also gained a few interested Volunteers and they quickly got to work meeting that same week to go over details for an upcoming build in Blue Hill.

Not long after that our Volunteers were out in the field getting to work, quite literally!

Below are pictures of our job site in Blue Hill where energy is buzzing and birds are chirping as the site work continues. Soon there will be a well drilled and a foundation laid for a future Habitat Home! Without our dedicated Volunteers none of this would be possible!

In addition to the progress above. A small team came together to get organized.

Our materials and tools needed attention!

Without hesitation a few fine folks joined together on a sunny Friday afternoon to get that work done.

Look at the success in the pictures below of our unit before and after!

The appreciation we have for our Volunteers runs deep here at Habitat for Humanity. They are the helping hands we need at the moments we need them most. The excitement is growing for what we have going on in Hancock County and our Volunteers are a huge part of that. They bring an energy with them that can't be replaced and we value all the work they do!

If you are interested in Volunteering or have resources you think would be useful for our upcoming projects don't hesitate to reach out. We would love to have you join our team!
