Chaffee County Habitat for Humanity is in critical need of volunteers at the Habitat for Humanity build site on County road 197B in Nathrop.
Whether you can help a few hours a day or a full day—no experience is needed. Most of the upcoming work is interior so you don’t have to worry about working outside in the cold.
The goal is to have two new Habitat homeowners moved into their homes before Christmas.
To volunteer, go to the Chaffee County Habitat for Humanity website or call 719-395-0482.
Dan attended Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas from 1978-82 (where he picked up the name Dan R after his fraternity brothers couldn’t pronounce his last name), majoring in Radio/Television. Dan lived in Jonesboro for 10 years working in radio and then was a TV weatherman for ABC affiliate KAIT Channel 8.
Television was a little boring when compared to radio, so Dan returned to hosting radio morning shows in Nashville, Memphis, Oklahoma, and then eventually, Colorado.
Dan enjoys being involved in the community, having been an member of the Upper Arkansas Service Club and is currently on the board of directors for the Salida Community Center and is a member of the Chaffee County Fair Committee.
Dan and his wife Carrie spend their days doing everything the mountains have to offer: hiking, camping, fishing and skiing. They raised 3 children together and have 2 grandchildren.
