Doug and Gwen Campbell became familiar with Habitat about 20 years ago through Doug’s former job. Before entering into the real estate industry, Doug was in a food service training position. He was able to get local restaurants to donate lunch that he and Gwen delivered to Habitat job sites. The Campbell's got reacquainted with Habitat Pinellas in 2017 by joining Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Dunedin North at the annual Community Builders Breakfast. At the breakfast they were inspired to contribute $100 from every real estate transaction they complete. They joined the Community Builders Society by making a three year pledge. They are paying it off early and continue to support with memberships in Hammers & Heels and Hunks with Hammers.
One day while volunteering on 2 job sites in Garden Trail they had the opportunity to witness a homeowner’s dedication. Gwen mentioned that she sells houses all the time but to see someone work so hard to receive their keys brought tears to her eyes. Doug and Gwen understand the importance of raising children in a safe and secure home. They also understand the importance of the classes and sweat equity that homeowner candidates are required to do in order to get the keys to their home.
The Campbell's are generous with their time, talent, and treasure. In addition to Habitat Pinellas they volunteer with Keller Williams Red Day, KW Kids Can and their church, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church. Gwen said “People’s hearts are good”. Habitat can say “The Campbell's hearts are good”.
