VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT 

FRED DIENER

Have you been to the ReStore lately? You might have seen Fred at the front counter, helping customers, or directing traffic. Fred volunteers 35-40 hours a week, making him one of Habitat's MVP's. "I love being here,' says Fred. "This is my family, even if we are not related."  


Fred is often sought after as the "go-to-guy" by staff members and fellow volunteers. Need to find something at the Re-Store? You can ask Fred. 
He enjoys seeing the end product of building homes for families in need. With a full grasp of what it is to lend more than a helping hand, Fred contributes his time and efforts in a way that continues to foster positivity and enrichment for Habitat for Humanity.

ROCK STREET HOME DEDICATION 

 

Working alongside dedicated volunteers and generous sponsors, and in partnership with a local family in need, San Diego Habitat for Humanity  has completed another simple, decent, safe and affordable home in San Diego.   We celebrated together on August 18th. Guests at this heartwarming event wished the new homeowners, the Haile/Redie Family, well and sent them blessings as they embark on their new lives filled with renewed hope and success!

 

Your Donations Help Internationally

A Lesotho Family Proudly Displays Their Certificate of Mortgage Payoff

San Diego Habitat for Humanity tithes a certain amount of its yearly unrestricted fundraising dollars to help Habitat's efforts internationally.  This year, we sent funds to the African country of Lesotho, as the need there is great. In FY13 alone, Habitat Lesotho, with YOUR help, provided better housing and sanitation to 140 families, including 403 children!

Habitat for Humanity Lesotho began helping people in need in 2001. Since then, they have built 143 homes in the Khubela area, and 29 of those families have paid off their mortgages! 
ReStore Employee Spotlight

JEFF SALYER
Need to find something at the ReStore? Just ask Jeff. He has a knack for organizing the many donations that come in. His customer service skills began while Jeff was just a kid. By the age of eight, Jeff was selling produce that came from the vegetable farm where he was raised in Chelsea, Michigan. This led to a very hands-on approach to life, and that later manifested to his enjoyment of construction.

 

The outdoor lifestyle appeals to Jeff. In 1992, he moved to Salt Lake City, Utah to pursue a career in rock climbing and professional skiing, while working in construction management. Jeff specialized in road construction and fiber optics. He moved to San Diego in February 2012 and loves the people and the climate. 

We Need YOU!
