An Endeavor Air pilot, Captain Ben W., has dedicated hundreds of hours to the Habitat NYC ReStore and our mission.
Since starting in 2016, Ben has more than 500 of volunteer hours under his belt, earning a Volunteer of the Month award and even the Winter Warrior award, which is presented to the volunteer with the most service hours during the brutal winter months in New York.
“Many of the folks who come into ReStore to volunteer are often there as part of some type of community service work or required school volunteer program, but I just love doing it,” Ben said. “I’m often asked how much more time I have to do and I just smile and say I’m here as long as they need me.”
“I like the flexibility my job at Endeavor affords me, but knowing I’m making a difference at ReStore is what really drives me,” Ben said. “I don’t see where these donations go, whether it’s a single mom who just bought a house and needs a couch, or a family who’s barely making ends meet and trying to save money on furnishings, it’s nice to know I’m contributing to the lives of families across New York.”
