Outstanding Volunteers Recognized at Volunteer Appreciation Night

Last year over 15,000 volunteers gave over 100,000 hours of their time to make a difference at Habitat Metro Denver. With National Volunteer Appreciation Week happening this month, we would like to thank these amazing individuals for donating their time and talents to improve their communities and the lives of local, hardworking families.

In honor of these incredible volunteers, we held a Volunteer Appreciation Party on April 12. Outstanding volunteers were recognized in the areas of volunteer recruitment, finance, construction, family outreach and support, and going above and beyond the call of duty.
