Volunteer Spotlight: Donna

Donna Pryor is one of the smiling faces you’ll see when walking into the Habitat Edmonton office. With a great skill set and a passion for Habitat’s charitable work, Donna is a valued volunteer. She is always willing to lend her hands and ideas to staff and those who visit and are looking for information.

For many years Donna has supported Habitat Edmonton and, when she retired, she decided to support us more directly. One day, while reading through our monthly newsletter, she noticed a request for an office volunteer. With extra time on her hands, she decided to put her skills to good use, and applied for the position. In 2021, Donna began volunteering at our front desk, and since then she has volunteered every Wednesday and Thursday. 

Donna’s friendly demeanor and experience makes her a perfect fit for the office. She is often found on the phone helping families who are looking into Habitat’s homeownership program, or offering a smile to all who walk through our doors.

Perhaps Donna’s favorite part of volunteering for Habitat is that she knows that she is having a positive impact on her community. She believes in Habitat’s mission and enjoys helping families in her community gain access to affordable homeownership.

“It’s so nice to be here,” says Donna. “Giving back is a big part of why I wanted to volunteer. It’s nice to answer the phones and talk to people who are looking for homes. It’s nice to be able to help them through it.”

Donna’s help is invaluable, and we are so lucky to have her continued support.
