PPHFH had to postpone the 2020 Volunteer Appreciation Event in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have tried to reschedule the event to this autumn, but alas to no avail. As a result, the PPHFH leadership team has taken the difficult decision to officially cancel the in-person event for 2020 and instead compose a pre-recorded 2019 Volunteer Award Ceremony.

2019 Volunteer Award Ceremony

Every hand makes a difference.

This ceremony was made possible by the generous support of

Thank you, GE Johnson Construction Company for your third year of generous support of Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity's volunteers.

The 2021 Volunteer Appreciation Event will be brought to you by the kind and generous support of GE Johnson Construction Company and has been scheduled for April 15, 2021 with the hope that we will be able to meet again for an in-person event.

A recipient of the George Hammond Award is a volunteer who truly is noteworthy for their constant contributions to the mission of PPHFH - a constant supporter, a constant advocate and, most importantly, a constant leader.
