I’ve been volunteering with Habitat For Humanity for 25 years now. I’ve always liked knowing where my efforts or dollars are going. It serves a great purpose in the community; about 10 percent of the population just wouldn’t be able to afford their own home without Habitat. My role as crew leader has me working here in the city, but it’s also taken me all over the world – working with Habitat organizations throughout Central America and the Caribbean. These projects, domestically and internationally, can prove life-altering for people. It’s humbling. Volunteering not only improves Canada, but it can benefit the entire world, really!
