Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company this month recognized James M. Wehr, a board member and the current president of Loudoun Habitat for Humanity, for his ongoing volunteerism and work with the local nonprofit. Part of that recognition included a $10,000 grant for Loudoun Habitat, which the organization plans to use to provide affordable housing for families in need. Wehr was one of just eleven winners selected from across the United States, including one $25,000 Community Service Volunteer of the Year Award winner.
“I am honored that we were chosen to receive this award,” Wehr said in a press release. “We will put this money to good use in our local mission to eliminate poverty housing.”
Robin Rose, a member of the 2012 Community Service Awards Selection Committee stated, “We hope that your efforts and the results that they have produced will encourage others to give their time and energy to make a difference in the community.”
Wehr has volunteered with Loudoun Habitat for Humanity for the past six years and has served in a number of roles including Development and Nominating Committee Chair and Vice President of the Executive Committee prior to becoming president.
Wehr, his wife Sandy, and their three sons, Michael, Danny and Jack, live in Hamilton.
