Amaze-A-Thon

Skagit Habitat for Humanity's 3rd Annual Amaze-A-Thon, 'Skagit County's Original Mobile Scavenger Hunt' went off with a bang on Saturday August 23, 2014 raising over $9,000.

We couldn't have done it without Major Sponsors: Regence, H & R Block and Walmart. It wouldn't be a MOBILE scavenger hunt without Location Sponsors: Boy Scouts of America - Skagit District, Children's Museum of Skagit County, Get Simple Box, Hampton Inn, Lickety Clips, Mister T's Awards & Embroidery, Nordic Temperature Control, North Cove Coffee, Penumbra Tables at Sahara Pizza & Lounge, and Skagit Event Center - The Skateway.

This was the first year we held a 'Health and Safety Fair' while teams were on the 'HUNT'. We want to thank the fair vendors that supported us: Allstate - All In One Insurance, American Red Cross - Mount Baker Chapter, Natural Way Chiropractic, Puget Sound Energy, and Simply Aroma - Diana Anderson.

Thanks: Dick and Jan Iversen, Manresa Castle, Nell Thorn Restaurant & Pub, Starbuck's and Cruisin Coffee for donating fabulous prizes. Thank you also to: professional photographers for the event Adam of Bridge Wing Photography and Michael Goos; DJ: Roel Almanza; Kelsy of Evergreen NovelTees; Skagit Eats for webhosting and promotion. A huge thank you to all of our volunteers for the day and our teams that made our event such a great success with an extra thanks to those teams that collected 'pledges'!

Skagit Habitat for Humanity gave me the training and confidence to seek employment in the retail industry.  The personnel not only gave me the training and confidence, but they also prepared me for what to expect when I got hired elsewhere.  For the first time in my life I never had the jitters that come with a new job. Thank you, Skagit Habitat.

I came to Skagit Habitat for Humanity to finish up my 360 work base learning for Job Corps.  When I started, I came in with the mindset that I wasn’t going to like it because it wasn’t my first choice of placement.  After about a week, I grew to love it there and liked being able to help the customers and employees.  I can say that by coming here, I have grown to like working with Excel and other programs I was struggling with or didn’t know much about.  Being around some of the employees that are the same age as me, made me feel really comfortable in what I was doing and I knew they would be there to answer any questions I had.  I can also say that I have learned something from every single person I came in contact with at Skagit Habitat.  I even started looking at what possibilities there might be at the Habitat Store in Fresno where I’m moving to.  Even though my time was up, I didn’t want to leave but I will come back and volunteer any time I come back to Washington for an extended length of time.

In recent years I came upon troubled times. A computer replaced me. I tried to find another job. I have double vision and seizures which cause me to be slow and skip time. I was taking a computer class at Goodwill and Fran, a volunteer here, told me about Habitat needing help. The longer I volunteer the more skills I learn and the more efficient I become.

Here I am and have been since November of 2012. I enjoy the people in the office, store, and those I met from the construction site. The bosses are great!!!  I enjoy the work I do entering time for all the volunteers. I like working on the archives for the accounting department. Many other things I do make the day at Habitat a rewarding day.

I have been a volunteer with Skagit Habitat since November 2004.

Although many things about volunteering at Habitat are good, making homes for hard-working families, improving our community, developing handyman skills, etc., the primary reason I come to Habitat is the great folks who also volunteer. I count many fellow Habitat volunteers among my closest friends. Through Habitat I meet, work, and play with the nicest, brightest, most uplifting people. If others compliment me on working with Habitat, I feel a little guilty. Of course it is a good thing to do, but I enjoy it so much that it is not a sacrifice in any way. It’s fun.

The Baer’s house in La Conner is the 14th Habitat house that I have worked on. I am looking forward to many more.
