HANOVER, MA, APRIL 18, 2019…. In celebration of April’s National Volunteer Month, South Shore Habitat for Humanity is recognizing ReStore volunteer Sammy Shortall.
Shortall is a competitive fencer, a senior at Norwell High, a soon-to-be freshman at Brandeis University and is both a volunteer and intern at the SSHH ReStore in Hanover.
Shortall is building her skills as an intern at the ReStore, which is an earth friendly donation center that sells new and used building materials, appliances, home décor and furniture at discounted prices. All proceeds from the sale of donated items support SSHH’s mission to deliver affordable homes to families in need.
“I’ve been a ReStore volunteer since early 2018 and jumped at the chance to do my senior internship here,” explained Shortall. “I like helping shoppers find bargains, connecting with people and hearing their stories. I am definitely learning customer service skills.
“The team at the ReStore makes me feel valued. It can be hard work, but everyone is so nice and it’s satisfying to support SSHH,” she said.
