Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Utah and the ReStore recently celebrated our annual Masquerade ball and fundraiser.  We took the opportunity to recognize some of the amazing individuals who choose to spend their time with us as volunteers.

The Restore volunteer of the Year for 2015 is Robert Baumann. Robert has been volunteering with the ReStore since we moved locations. We call him our Fan Man! Robert comes in whenever he can to test and balance all of the ceiling fans that come into the ReStore. Robert first came into our store when we were still located off Riverside.  Our staff saw something special in him then and knew he would make an amazing volunteer at our new location. When we moved we made a special Ceiling fan room just for Robert. Because of Robert we are able to say with confidence that all of our ceiling fans work, or else we wouldn’t be selling them! Robert has a special love for ceiling fans and so testing them is the perfect job for him. We are forever grateful for his valuable time spent with us!

2015 Restore Volunteer of Year Honorable MentionOur honorable mention for Volunteer of the year is Dan Gibbons. Dan works as a Realtor for Coldwell banker here in town but outside of work Dan comes into the ReStore to volunteer his time anywhere we need him and has recently become our appliance and electronic expert.  Dan first came to the ReStore as a customer and has since become a part of our Habitat family. As a volunteer he is continually striving to make the ReStore better and we really couldn’t do this without volunteers like Dan.

This is just a drop in the bucket of the amazing volunteers we have at the Habitat ReStore. We have so many wonderful individuals and groups that help us make the ReStore the best it can be.  Because of these people we are able to do more for Habitat for Humanity and help more families in our community.
