Habitat Hillsborough names 2018 volunteers of the year

Board Chair Anthony Brooks, named Board Member of the Year, with Habitat Hillsborough CEO Tina Swain.

Volunteers are the heartbeat of Habitat for Humanity. We rely on our volunteers and donors to help us make a life-changing difference for the families and individuals we build for.

We are blessed to have so many dedicated volunteers who help us on the build sites, in our ReStores, with our homeowner services programs and in our administrative office. Each year, we have a tough choice to single out individuals to spotlight for our annual awards recognitions.

Please join us in applauding our 2018 Volunteers of the Year who were announced at our annual “VolunteerFest” on December 1st.
