15 years and counting

For David More, volunteering at Habitat for Humanity comes down to camaraderie with his fellow volunteers and the chance to watch lives change through homeownership.

DavidM9.24.15-42.jpgWhen he retired in 2001, David sought a new focus. He didn’t have to look far; just a few blocks from his San Jose home was a Habitat job site. From his first volunteer day, David was hooked, and he quickly became a fixture in our crew of regular volunteers. Fifteen years later, David is still a mainstay in our community, and has the Habitat stories to prove it- like the time his bagpipe band played for the home dedication or when he celebrated his 70th birthday with a build day.

Now at 76, David continues to volunteer three times a week. You might find him cutting trim for the Playhouse program, entering data for our volunteer programs, and lending a helping hand and an expert eye on the construction site.

With his Admirable dedication and his spirit is infectious, David helps drive Habitat’s success day after day.
