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.”
