Have you ever met a person who takes on a new project and jumps in with both feet in overdrive? That describes Jovani Palmer. He began volunteering at our Waldo ReStore in October of 2016. In the last six months, he has clocked in over 500 volunteer hours. We like to think it was the grace of God that sent him our way. When asked how he chose us, he said, “I searched on the web for volunteer opportunities and Habitat was the first to pop up.” What a blessing he has been!
Jovani is a transplant to Kansas City; he grew up in Westchester County New York. He fills his days attending law school, exercising, playing video games and, of course, sharing himself with the staff and customers at ReStore. His favorite part of volunteering is, “To help out and make someone’s day. I love sharing a smile and getting one back,” says Jovani, with a grin of his own of course.
