Habitat For Humanity is a non-profit whose mission is driven by hundreds of volunteers.

On Thursday night, the Monroe County chapter celebrated its own volunteers at its annual Volunteer Appreciation Event.

15 volunteers were recognized for each contributing over 100 hours with Habitat For Humanity.

This year the organization put in over 8,000 volunteer hours total.

"We want to be a family, we want to create a community so we want to let volunteers know that we appreciate them and know that we're an organization that they might want to continue volunteering with," said Kelly Kemmerer, executive director of Monroe County Habitat For Humanity.

A $1,500 donation was also presented to the organization by PenFed Credit Union.
