Our annual Volunteer Recognition and Awards event was held recently. Every year, over 4,000 unique volunteers donate time on the construction site, in one of our ReStores, or on a committee. The great thing about our society and our local community is that so many wonderful people take the time to help.
Volunteers serve on various committees including our Annual Affordable Housing Benefit Breakfast, Family Services, Faith, Finance, Golf, Polo (yes Polo, but you don’t have to play), ReStore and Women Build.
Over 34,000 hours were contributed, and all of these efforts saved Habitat for Humanity in excess of $871,000 in Fiscal Year 2019.
Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards recognized volunteers for extraordinary service and commitment to the mission and work of Habitat for Humanity Metro Maryland.
The R. Glynn Mays Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to Mimi Brodsky Kress for outstanding volunteer service to Habitat. Mimi is the co-owner and COO of Sandy Spring Builders.
