If you look up volunteer in the dictionary it will say “a person who voluntarily undertakes or
expresses a willingness to undertake a service”. People who knew Jerry Erickson would tell you his
picture could be beside that definition as a wonderful example of what it means to volunteer. The list
of services he supported is too long to include everyone but a short list would include Coastal
Harvest, the Hoquiam Food Bank, Christmas for Kids and Relay for Life. He was also part of several
organizations that have service as their primary goal including The Lions, the Grays Harbor Civic
Choir, Saron Lutheran-1st Presbyterian Church, and the Polson Museum.
We here at Habitat for Humanity of Grays Harbor will be forever grateful that he chose to volunteer
with us for so many years. As a member of the "A Team", a group of retirees that worked full time on HFHGH homes, he was instrumental to the success of the affiliate’s early projects and always ready to lend a hand in recent years with other tasks, build related or not. He would regularly stop to visit at the Habitat store or job site and had genuine interest in how things were going and what was
coming next. On the most recent build he saw need for a tool he had in his "arsenal" of tools and was eager to lend it to us for the duration of the project. We were very glad Jerry was able to attend our most recent home dedication in October. Jerry and his spirit of volunteering however he could help
will be missed.
With sincerest condolences,
All of us at Habitat for Humanity of Grays Harbor

How does the Habitat Store divert items from landfills?
You may already know about Habitat for Humanity of Grays Harbor and how it provides affordable housing to local families. But you might be surprised how shopping and supporting the Store home improvement outlets helped divert over 292,856 pounds of refuse from being thrown in landfills for 2019.
Habitat for Humanity Grays Harbor Store, located in Hoquiam, provides the public with new and gently used home improvement products and building materials. From lighting, furniture, doors, windows, appliances, cabinets, and tools, it’s the perfect place to shop for deals on small projects or your upcoming home remodel.
When items are donated to the Store from individuals, building supply stores, contractors, or other businesses, they are then sold at a discounted price to the public. Items too nice to throw away, can now be enjoyed again or upcycled.
It gets better
The Habitat Store volunteers also collect and sort metals that can be recycled from non-salable items. Copper tubing, faucets, and other items are broken down and separated into buckets.
