VOWVolunteer of the Week!
Barb Joachim has been volunteering with Habitat for Humanity for the past 8 years. She has been hooked ever since she volunteered on a build site back in 2007. Since that time, Barbie averages about 300 volunteer hours per year between build sites and helping out at the ReStore.


You can often find Barbie knitting mittens and hats for needy kids to weather the cold Wisconsin winders. Last year she made over 200 pairs of mittens and over 60 hats for Green Bay area schools. Barb is truly a one of a kind but her personality is perfect for cloning more wonderful volunteers just like her. 

Thank you Barbie!
