Joe has been a regular volunteer with Habitat for approximately 5 years, putting in about 12 hours each week to inspect and repair all the electrical-based donations that come into the ReStore. Originally from Maine, Joe moved to the New Bern area in 2010. He graduated from the University of Maryland and was a juvenile probation officer prior to his retirement and then gained experience as an electrical contractor. His hobbies are woodworking, reading, rock climbing, and white water kayaking.

What does Joe like about volunteering with Habitat?

Volunteering at Habitat gives me a chance to give back to the community, and I think it’s a great organization and cause!
