“We just liked the idea that we could do something to help someone get a roof over their head,” Dave resounded. “It’s tough to have a good day if you don’t have a roof over your head.”
It is a rare occurrence to meet someone, let alone two people, who embody so many qualities that you admire. Laurie and Dave Russell are compassionate, inventive, humble, and hopeful. They have been consistent donors, volunteers, and enthusiasts at Habitat for Humanity of Kent County for upwards of two decades. The act of giving back through Habitat Kent is a trait they fostered in their children from a young age and grew to become a family bonding tradition. Beyond their plentiful labor on work sites, their generous spirit will continue to help others in a new way: the Dave and Laurie Russell Family Scholarship for Habitat for Humanity of Kent County Families.
