Testimonials from volunteers

Adrian Chuldleigh, Crew Leader for four years:
“I build because it's very rewarding to see the happy smiles on the young families as they're moving to their new home. You know if you give out yourself to others, you'd be rewarded and certainly that has been the case with me.”
Dayle Turnbull, Crew Leader for 10 years:
“I like helping people, learning new trades, new things to do. It's always interesting to start taking the house foundation, putting the walls, finishing the painting. I only volunteer once a week, so I figured out that's a great opportunity to get out, meet new people, make friends with other great crew leaders, meet the homeowners, which is a phenomenal experience. A lot of them made me cry numerous times, so there's a companionship aspect of it which is remarkable.”
Doug Roll, ReStore Volunteer for three years:
“I volunteer at the ReStore because it's one of the small ways I can contribute to the success of an organization and some people that are helping themselves.”
Sandy Grassick, office volunteer for 14 years:
“I volunteer here because I want to contribute to this important cause. I was a teacher administrator for a few years and saw what influence stable housing has on children. It impacts their grades, completion rates, mental stability, and other crucial aspects of their lives.”
