50 Faces of Volunteers – Lee Turnbull

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

Tell us a little about the volunteer:

Lee Turnbull has been volunteering with Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity for 2 years. When he isn’t volunteering he is traveling with his wife, biking or hiking. Before spending the time to volunteer, Lee worked for Pioneer hybrid seed company.

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

Lee really values being able to volunteer because he believes that every little bit counts. He believes that it is important for people to have decent housing and not have to spend a disproportionate amount to get there. You can always find Lee spreading the word about the work Habitat is doing.


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!
