This 100-Year-Old Activist Volunteers 20 Hours A Week With Habitat For Humanity

The centenarian has no intention of slowing down, either.

Meet Harold Hager, a compassionate centenarian who is being recognized as an unparalleled charitable worker. Even though he is 100-years-old, Harold donates 20 hours of his time every week to work at the Steuben County’s Habitat for Humanity.

Reportedly, he’s been doing this for the past few years. Even more impressive is the fact that Harold presently volunteers more than anyone else at the charity.

A World War II Navy veteran, Harold was inspired to volunteer in his local community after his wife of 71 years passed away in 2010. At first, he started working for the Retired Seniors Volunteer Program (RSVP). After connecting with the New York Habitat for Humanity facility, however, he switched trades.

Last week, the hard-working centenarian was honored for his contributions. As WENY reports, Harold has no intention of slowing down, either. In fact, he has a goal of reaching age 105 and intends to keep volunteering as long as possible.
