Sania a Habitat ReStore Volunteer

Social Sania

What do you do when you volunteer?

I spent a couple of days in the receiving area to get the feeling of the ReStore and now I work on Social Media Marketing and help with organizing the ReStore Grand ReOpening. At times when I’m not sitting in front of the computer, I just go downstairs and help with anything that needs to be helped with.

What do you like about volunteering?

Anyone who has ever volunteered with the ReStore will tell you, that the best part of the experience are the people that work or volunteer there. It takes a very special kind of person to devote their free time or, sometimes, quit full-time jobs to help a better cause.

What do you do on your days off from volunteering?

I enjoy doing what I’m doing for Habitat so much, so on my days off very often I work. When I finally drag myself away from computer I go to the gym, read books, draw, go hiking and camping.

What is your favorite thing about volunteering at the ReStore?

I enjoy all the people who work and volunteer at the store. It’s a great feeling to be a part of something that makes a profit and that profit is turned into homes for some well deserving families.

I am a Range Captain at the San Mateo County Archery Range at Huddart County Park.  I also work out at 24 Hour fitness and spend countless hours working on our house with my wife, Lorie.
