Sue Mooney "Retires" from ReStore

Sue Mooney has been an important part of the Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity ReStore team since January 2008. She has volunteered over 2,528 hours and has been instrumental in the success of ReStore.

Sue's focus over the years has been helping ReStore keep in tune with the Recycle part of the "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" motto. She helped educate ReStore staff and volunteers on what types of items could be recycled and how to sort them properly. Sue's passion for recycling went way beyond the educational component. She set up a sorting center in the store and kept it organized to make it easy for people to properly prepare items for recycling. She put in a lot of physical labor loading up her trusty Toyota pick up with cardboard, plastic and paper to take to the recycling center. Over the years she loaded and unloaded over 55,000 pounds of recycling from that little Toyota. Truly an amazing effort!

Unfortunately, some health issues forced Sue to "retire" from her ReStore volunteer duties. She will now have more time to concentrate on spoiling her dachshund and hopefully spend a little time spoiling herself. Sue's devotion to ReStore is very much appreciated. Volunteers like her are the lifeblood of BVHfH. She will be missed.
