Nominated by Bek Wright, Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity, Des Moines

Tell us a little about the volunteer:

What is the primary (one or two) organization(s) they serve?

Why does this volunteer deserve to be recognized with a 50 Faces of Volunteers spotlight?

Bruce sees volunteering with Habitat for Humanity as an opportunity to give back, work with good people, and stay active. He truly believes in our mission of affordable housing and takes the time to talk and get to know the partner families. His favorite part in his volunteer experience so far is connecting with the volunteers and making a difference in the lives of the partner families.


Tell us about a great volunteer! We would love to recognize them as one of our “50 Faces of Volunteers.” Volunteer Iowa selects one nomination to feature every other Wednesday. 

Nominating is easy! You’ll submit a short paragraph or two about the volunteer(s) and their experience. The who/what/where/when (or for how long) and, most importantly, the why of their volunteer cause. We have provided some questions to prompt responses. It’s also strong requested that you submit a photo with your nomination. This is a great opportunity to help showcase a dedicated volunteer or volunteer group in your community!
