Featured Faithful: Alison Paradise
Alison wears many hats when it comes to Habitat volunteerism. She’s a Women Build crew chief, the faculty lead for the University of Puget Sound Campus Chapter, and liaison for her church, Harbor Covenant’s, annual Sunday of Service. Alison has been coordinating Sunday of Service days for well over a decade, with Habitat construction manager Nick Zolle agreeing to work on his day off to lead the group.
“Some years we had only a couple of volunteers, sometimes up to 25,” says Alison. The group has worked on new construction homes, in neighborhood pre-development (deconstruction of the teddy bear house at The Woods at Golden Given among Alison’s favorites), and on home rehab projects. “It’s a great day of fellowship and spreading the word about the Habitat mission.”
