Join us in wishing Mary a happy retirement! She has been our Partner Family and Volunteer Coordinator for nearly eight and a half years. Her favorite part of the job has been “seeing the excitement in our partner families’ eyes at the dedication of their homes, and hearing their wonderful testimonials at that time”. Mary is looking forward to having more free time in the upcoming holiday season as well as having more time for her hobbies that include reading, sewing, quilting, traveling, gardening, and spending time with family and friends.
Don’t worry, “Of course Habitat for Humanity of Summit County will still be in my life!” Mary says. Mary has a passion for Habitat’s mission and she plans on continuing to volunteer on builds with the Common Mission Coalition, a group of churches who build a Habitat house every other year. She also plans on joining the Habitat Family Selection Committee where she will assist in reviewing applications for homeownership. “I am looking forward to participating with other HFHSC volunteers on the Global Village Trip in Mexico in early spring.” She also is excited to attend the home dedications of the partner families she has been working with to celebrate their accomplishments. We hope Mary enjoys retirement and we look forward to continuing to work with her as we work towards our mission to build a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
