Jose Carrillo is our January 2018 Volunteer of the Month. Jose was selected by the Bellflower ReStore staff for his outstanding work and friendly attitude. According to Ian McGough, ReStore Manager, “He is a great volunteer, who works hard every day.” Jose joined the volunteer team in 2015.
At 28 years old, Jose was managing a small store and sought a more active role in the retail industry. He then came to Habitat LA to gain additional retail management experience. The ReStore offered Jose the opportunity to volunteer and gain the work knowledge necessary for advancement toward a management position.
When asked what he likes most working at the ReStore, Jose replied, “The people I work with. Everyone is friendly, helpful and they all treat me with respect.” In the very near future Jose plans to return to school and use his volunteer experience to help build his resume with hopes of becoming a warehouse manager.
