May Volunteer of the Month


Congratulations to Don Colgan, our Volunteer of the Month! Don has served as a dedicated Habitat volunteer for over 5 years, in a variety of roles: ReStore volunteer, Blues & Brews Festival volunteer, family Advocate, Family Partnership Committee chair, and currently as a Board Member. He served as family Advocate for Albert, our 51st homeowner.  Don was deeply moved to see homeowner Albert at the dedication ceremony as he received the keys to his home.

Don enjoys working with Habitat because he cares about affordable housing issues – having served as a teacher for 30 years in Springfield Public Schools, he is connected to the community and wants to continue to give back. In addition to his service with Habitat, Don volunteers with the Long Term Care Ombudsman Program. Don has been a committed and compassionate volunteer in service to Habitat families. Please join us in congratulating Don on his many accomplishments as a Habitat volunteer!
