Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
John has been helping Habitat for Humanity for 15 years. "I was on the Habitat board in Portage County--even the President for a year. I've been volunteering at the Lorain County ReStore for about 2 years." John is a retired VP of Human Resources for a manufacturing company and lives with his wife in North Ridgeville; they have 2 grown sons and 4 grand children as well. He states proudly that his oldest granddaughter is about ready to graduate from college and go to law school. He's also quick to add that his wife supports his volunteer work.
"When I first volunteered with Habitat I thought I would be building houses, but I like this better. I like to fix things, do carpentry. I come because volunteering at the ReStore is pretty flexible; it fits in with my schedule. I get satisfaction from helping people get into homes." John knows that ReStore profits go directly into Habitat construction in Lorain County.
Thanks, John, you make our vision possible--a world where everyone gets a decent place to live!
