NPSAR Charity Golf Tournament

Thank you so much to the North Puget Sound Association of Realtors (NPSAR) for selecting Skagit Habitat for Humanity (SHFH) as one of the charities to receive proceeds for this year’s NPSAR Charity Golf Tournament held on September 5, 2014 at Skagit Golf and Country Club raising $6,326.24 for SHFH alone.  This was the first year back after taking a break for a few years and it proved to be a great success and lots of fun for all of those involved!  Thank you to the many Sponsors of the event:  including Gold Sponsor Umpqua Bank, Hole-In-One Sponsor Foothills Toyota Scion, and Brunch Sponsor Landed Gentry.  Extra big thanks from SHFH to our Sponsors that we received full funding from for the event: Bronze level sponsor North Cascade Eye Associates and Hole Sponsor US Bank.  Thank you to all of those who volunteered not only for SHFH but for Friendship House and NPSAR as well we couldn’t have done it without you.

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.
