Director of ReStores
Donna came on board with Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln County in January of 2015. As Assistant Manager, along with Manager Mary Gibbs, Donna helped renovate the old CVS store over a four month period into the new Denver Restore. In September of 2016, when Mary Gibbs left to open the new Lincolnton ReStore, Donna became the Denver ReStore Manager. Donna's past experience as a business owner has helped her in leading an amazing team of ReStore staff and volunteers as well as developing a network of generous Lincoln County residents whose donations are essential to the success of the ReStore. Above all, she finds contentment and satisfaction in knowing that the fruits of the hard labor involved in running the ReStores provide hope to families while spreading God’s Love.
