Staff Spotlight: Doris

Doris is our ReStore Donation Coordinator, and we’re so thankful that she is on our team. Below is our Q&A with Doris– we hope you enjoy!

Q: How would you describe your role at the ReStore?

A: I am everything donations! I schedule our truck for business and residential pickups that we do Tuesday through Saturday. I also take calls/or call back donors who are looking to drop off donations at the ReStore. In addition to that, I schedule days for our drivers to recycle scrap material and cardboard. I am also responsible for celebrating birthdays each month for our team of employees and our “True Blues”!

Q: What is your history with Habitat/ the ReStore? How long have you worked with RAHFH?

A: I have been with RAHFH for 2 years and have loved every moment of it!

Q: What do you love about Habitat?

A: I have always wanted to work for a not-for-profit and RAHFH was at the top of my list! I love how RAHFH is about everything community. Providing safe and affordable housing for families in our community is an amazing thing to be a part of. The ReStore plays a huge part in items not going into our landfills, as well as providing items for re-sale at affordable prices.

Q: What is one of your favorite moments/ memories of working with Habitat?

A: One of my favorite memories so far was attending my first Home Dedication in the fall of 2019. It is a memory that I will take with me forever. I am looking forward to being able to attend them again soon!

Q: What makes you passionate about your work?

A: Our team and volunteers make the ReStore a happy place to work at every day. Also, I get to end each one of my calls with “Thank you for your donation”. That fills my love bucket every day!

Q: What is one fun or surprising fact about you?

A: I used to play the cello. I wish I had not stopped playing but I enjoyed the time that I did!

Q: When you’re not serving with HFH, what are you up to? What do you do for fun?

A: Spending time with my family and friends are a top priority for me! My husband and I love to take road trips to various states to visit family and friends. I also love to read.
