Tell us a little about the volunteer:

What is the primary (one or two) organization(s) they serve?
Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity for 4 years
Why does this volunteer deserve to be recognized with a 50 Faces of Volunteers spotlight?
Wayne comes out to volunteer with us twice a week with a small group of other retired gentlemen. These gentlemen are a part of a program that we call the core crew. They enjoy to work on group projects and have grown in friendship and teamwork. Wayne came to volunteer for us after he retired from his job with an insurance company. Once he was retired, Wayne found himself looking for something to spend his time doing. What Wayne enjoys most about volunteering is being able to work with the other gentlemen in his group and make friendships at the same time as helping people in need in the community.
