Ladies and Gentlemen,
I present to you our Habitat Saints. They are the backbone of our construction department. They have traded in stethoscopes, desktops, and wall street for a Habitat hammer.
Hartford Habitat is fortunate to have over 44 Saints that volunteer with us on weekly basis regardless of the weather or location. With their support, we are able to deliver our construction schedule on time every year. So they are not only carrying me but our mission to build simple, decent homes for families in need!
John Talley volunteered during one of our blitz build a few years back; loved it and joined the team. Like many of our Saints; John brings a smile, a wise crack and laugh to every work day.
Mike Bassock and his family are committed volunteers in Hartford and Colorado affiliates. It is a family affair!
Paul Kiefer has volunteered with the affiliate for at least 15 years and is also a crew leader on many of our sites. Paul has so much patience; it is amazing.
Ralph Eustis has volunteered with us for over ten years and is also a crew leader. Ralph is known to say "measure twice cut once."
Rex Myers recently became a Saint this year after volunteering with us during public build days. He loved the sense of completion that you get from partnering with Habitat.
Robert Spencer has volunteered with the affiliate for over 30 years and became a saint immediately after retirement. Spencer recently completed a Habitat build in Vietnam.
We appreciate our Saints for their support and dedication to build homes, community and hope!
