“Life has treated me well… I’ve ended up on the lucky side of it. I don’t owe anyone anything, and own my home, I wanted to be able to give back to people who aren’t able to have that stability”

Mike is one of our longest standing volunteers at the Duncan ReStore, being with us for just over 2 years! Mike brings years of knowledge to our ReStore with his expertise in business and tools. You can find Mike helping unload our van from pickups, identifying and fixing tools in the back room, and helping our customer find what they’re looking for out on the floor. Mike is keen to help out in anyway he can throughout Habitat Mid-Vancouver Island.

Mike also says that since working at the ReStore he’s had to limit the amount of treasures he collects “my wife and I decided that I have to donate an item back to the ReStore every time I bring one home”


We are so thankful to have volunteers as dedicated and knowledgeable as Mike! We wouldn’t be able to do as much as we are without his expertise. Thank you Mike for being such an amazing volunteer! We miss you!
