SHAMOKIN DAM — The Union-Snyder Habitat for Humanity affiliate will celebrate the contributions of its many volunteers at a reception on Nov. 18 at the Central PA Youth Ministries Building, 117 W. 11th Ave. in Shamokin Dam. The reception will begin at 2 p.m.
At the reception, USHFH will welcome and thank all of the volunteers who have contributed their time and resources not only to building houses but also to the year-long activities such as fundraising, family selection and support, site selection, public relations, financial administration and volunteer recruitment. Current USHFH partner families are also invited. USHFH will also recognize its Volunteer of the Year, who will receive a certificate and gift as the recipient of the 2007 Jane Gibson Volunteer of the Year Award, named in honor of the late Jane Gibson whose selfless contributions to the local Habitat affiliate set the gold standard for what volunteerism is all about.
