Habitat Volunteer of a different kind -

posted on 4/28/2006

On Friday, April 21st, Ken And JoAnne Mohr loaded their company van with cooking utensils, pots, and pans, and all the fixin's to serve 15 meals to 60very hungry, hard working Habitat volunteers in the "Bayou Country". Ken had contacted Habitat International with an interest in volunteering his time to assist with hurricane recovery. His interest wasn't in hammering nails or painting walls. He wanted to apply the thing he treasures doing, cooking.

Ken learned how to cook from his grandmother. Ken's grandmother was from Italy and had a special talent for cooking Italian food that she passed down to Ken. After tasting just a little of his homemade sauces, you know Ken definitely inherited his grandmothers talent.

Ken and his wife, JoAnne, left their 4-year-old twins with their grandmother in Hagerstown, Md., put their business, Absolute Clean Power Wash on hold and headed down south to share wonderful food with our volunteers. Just some of his delicious food that they prepared included: turkey & dressing, homemade meatballs & marinara sauce, Italian sausage, breaded chicken along with strawberry, peach, cherry, and apple pies. All from scratch!!

Thank you Ken and JoAnne for proving that when it comes to volunteering with Bayou Area Habitat, it takes all kinds of talents not just construction. We are all pieces of a puzzle that have to come together to make it complete. The puzzle being housing for all families in need in Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes.
