After moving to Coeur d’Alene from south Texas in the late 1990s, Jerri began volunteer work with office manager Deb Fisher at Trinity Lutheran Church in Coeur d’ Alene where she had lots to learn and, patiently answered many calls. After a few years, the office moved to the new Builders Supply location on E. Seltice where Mariann Bethke, Pat Iverson and Jerri continued to be office volunteers. She moved with Builders Supply to the present location, and continues to help in the office. Over the years Jerri has had the rewarding experience of being a Family Partner to three families as they worked to have a home of their own. She also learned to shingle a shed, mud drywall, put siding and trim on a house, among other things. Jerri feels that becoming a board member has given her the opportunity to learn another facet of our affiliate. By volunteering, she has met and worked with some of the nicest and most dedicated people.
