July Volunteer of the Month

Marc G

Congratulations to Marc Gaberlein, our Volunteer of the Month! Marc is a ReStore volunteer extraordinaire.  ReStore customers nominated Marc for this honor, saying: “He is very nice to customers. He always finds ways to please customers and is a very friendly person.” Since beginning work at the ReStore in March 2014, customer service has been Marc’s number one priority and source of enjoyment. “I really enjoy the customers, and it’s a nice work environment,” says Marc.

Although Marc had experience in retail before joining the ReStore team, he has learned a lot more about building materials in the last year. He also enjoys meeting customers who live in Habitat homes, or who know someone that lives in a Habitat home. This reminds him of the direct connection between the ReStore and Habitat’s mission of providing affordable housing for local families. Originally from Montana, Marc has a strong background in food service, and was recently working for Food for Lane County. Thank you for all that you do, Marc!
