Volunteer Spotlight

Fall 2017

Mike works on laying shingles for the Beltran family home.

The weather may be changing but that doesn’t stop our fearless crew of amazing volunteers! Can you believe some of them continue to come out every Wednesday and Friday even in the rain? One of these unbelievable volunteers is Mike Williams, who has been volunteering regularly on our site since February. In that time, he has given over 350 hours to our organization.

Mike graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in paper science and engineering. He spent his 32 year career as a paper production engineer and then project manager. Mike didn’t wait long after retiring to jump in and get his hands dirty with Habitat. One week into retirement and he was already out swinging a hammer with our weekly crew. “I love working with Habitat. It’s a great group of volunteers and it’s so tangible; I can see everyday what we’ve accomplished.” says Mike.

When he’s not on site, Mike enjoys fishing, traveling with his wife, Kris, and cruising in their Corvette. Mike looks forward to his Kris’s, retirement next year and hopes to spend more time traveling in an RV.

To join Mike and our motley crew of regulars on site, call or email Heather at 360-737-1759 or volunteer@ehfh.org.
