Vince Walsh on Why He Loves Volunteering for DuPage Habitat
2018 Habitat Hero and DuPage Habitat Site Host Vince Walsh explains his dedication to volunteerism.
Vince Walsh is a volunteer site host at DuPage
Habitat for Humanity. In 2018, his time at DuPage Habitat was honored with a Habitat
Hero award, as well as being honored at DuPage Habitat’s Volunteer Appreciation
Event and Giving DuPage’s Volapalooza.
Here’s what Walsh had to say about his experience volunteering: “Each day I
work as a Site Host I have the rewarding experience of welcoming and getting to
know other volunteers. I like telling them about the Habitat mission to provide
partner families with “A Hand Up, Not A Hand Out” and to create a world where
everyone has a decent place to live. I participate in team building experiences
with groups of volunteers from local corporations. Key parts of my role are to
raise their awareness of safety on the job site, build enthusiasm and to
recruit volunteers to return to build with us again.”
