Volunteer Spotlight

Jeannette Keiter Volunteer Spotlight Volunteer Spotlight

Meet Jeannette Keiter who is our current Volunteer Spotlight! Jeannette is one of the amazing volunteers from the Apex ReStore and we are thrilled to have her on our team.

Jeannette works Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays and fills in when needed. She is a DIY enthusiast who is great with the customers and is exceptional with any task given to her. If you’ve been to the Apex ReStore you probably have met her as she Welcome’s everyone who enters! Very warm and bubbly, Jeannette is a customer favorite.

Q: What do you like about Volunteering at the ReStore?

A: I love interacting with the local community and seeing the difference that we (Habitat) make. It is very rewarding to get to know members of my community and to hear their stories. I really enjoy sharing the mission of Habitat Wake with customers and letting them know that their support is making a difference, right here in Apex and Wake County. The staff here is so friendly and appreciative of what we (volunteers) do. They make us feel important and I like being part of a team.

Q: Why did you choose Habitat and the ReStore as the place you would donate your time?

A: I live in Apex and have always been a customer to the other ReStores. I love the great products and the mission of Habitat Wake. I’ve always been a DIY person who enjoys to re-use and re-purpose salvaged materials. When I learned that the ReStore was coming to my community, I knew that I would see how I could lend a hand. I’ve been here since they opened in July.

Volunteering here is fun, rewarding and a great opportunity. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about volunteering to come in and see what we are about and give it a try!

Q: What is your favorate food?

A: I love anything with potatoes. You can’t go wrong with a potato dish.

Q: What can you share about you?

A: I am from Ohio and have lived in Apex for seven years. I am married to my high school sweetheart and have two children who are in college. I previously worked in the medical field. In my spare time, I love to travel internationally and spend time outdoors. We enjoy going to the beach, to the local lakes, and camping.
