Community Builders Breakfast

Given the current circumstances we moved the breakfast to a virtual event on Thursday, May 21, 2020.

This short, inspirational program will highlighted YOUR impact on Habitat Lincoln homeowners from the past and future through their stories. This event gives us an opportunity to share with the you not only the success you’ve helped build but more importantly how that success has helped over 170 families move from renting unaffordable and crowded apartments and mobile homes, to realizing their dream of owning their own home. This fundraising event will help us raise money toward our 2020-21 builds.

Congratulations to this year's Tom Scott and Joe Dappen Volunteer Award recipient, Ed Zastera. Ed works as a project manager for Brester Construction. He joined the Habitat Lincoln board of directors in 2016, serving on homeownership support, ReStore, and construction committees, and has chaired the committees many times. Ed goes above-and-beyond his board duties when it comes to volunteering - many times with his family by his side. 

  • Three years ago, when we began a donation drive event, Scrub Day, for ReStore, Ed volunteered to be one of our truck drivers to pick-up donations. He also volunteered his sons. They continue to be one of our go-to teams! 
  • As one of the charities that benefits from the Good Life Halfsy we provide volunteers at the expo for packet pick-up and race day recovery. Ed, and his family, have helped during the expo for the last four-years. Ed and his wife help hand out race packets while the boys make sure the Bulu boxes, t-shirts, and add-ons are stocked. We couldn't have this event run smoothly without them! In fact, last year when Ed was able to attend an out-of-state Husker football game, his family continued to volunteer! 
  • Recently, in a passing conversation Ed was quoted as saying, "I'll help you do anything to raise money for Habitat!" There are witnesses. 
  • A year ago, we began offering home repairs to low-income homeowners. We currently do not have the capacity to do many or big projects, but we know there is a need. Once again, Ed stepped up. He met with homeowners to talk over the scope of work, made the game plan, and yes, did the work with his family and some team members from Brester Construction. We wouldn't have helped these additional families without him. 

Thank you Ed, for everything you do for the organization, but most importantly, Habitat Lincoln homeowners.
