What do you get someone that has everything? Jillan had been struggling to answer this question as her father Jerry’s next birthday was rapidly approaching. Instead of material things, Jillan says her and her family are always in search of new experiences they can give to Jerry.
A previous volunteer in the Tacoma Habitat Store through serving as a local AmeriCorps VISTA member, Jillian found out about our Birthday Build program through a regular volunteer email. She thought this group building opportunity would be the perfect new and rewarding experience for her father.
On the day of the build, Jerry was joined by his family and friends at the Swan Creek neighborhood. The group worked on cleaning the build site, tiling the floor in lot 1, and taking down scaffolding from lot 2.
We are so thankful that Jillian and her family found a new experience to give their father through Birthday Build! We appreciate all of the hard work by this group and for their support in helping us provide home ownership opportunities to families that need it in our community!
