Employee Volunteer of the Month

As a manager at the machine and welding shop at NGS, Josh can build just about anything. It’s one of the reasons he decided to volunteer at HabiJax.

“I’m tall, so I always get the high stuff that needs painting,” Josh said.  “I don’t mind.”

Besides HabiJax, Josh enjoys volunteering at the Salvation Army’s annual toy giveaway.  He’s done it almost every one of the 11 years he’s worked at JEA.

“I like putting toys next to a name and imagining the kids opening their gifts on Christmas,” he said. 

Recently, Josh volunteered at the Barnabas Food Pantry in Fernandina and found it perhaps his most meaningful JEA volunteer experience yet.

“I was raised by a single mother,” he said. “I know I was always fed, but I cannot say she always fed herself. So for me to lend a hand at a food pantry gives me great pleasure,” Josh said.
