Luneack has been involved with RCHFH for over 10 years as a member of the Board of Directors, as the founder of RCHFH’s annual Hammer Down for Habitat Poker Run motorcycle event, and as a dedicated construction volunteer as well as a popular participant in the annual Cookin’ to Build event. As an employee of Fluor, a construction division of General Mills, Richard also leads a crew of co-workers to build yard sheds for each Habitat Homeowner – 85 sheds so far. As RCHFH Executive Director, Terri Shultz, stated, “Richard’s fund-raising efforts have resulted in over a quarter million dollars in money and in-kind donations and an unlimited number of Habitat house builds and repair projects!”
“I’m in it for the homeowners. I’m in it for the people who want to help themselves,” Richard stated as he accepted the award. “That’s why I’m such a firm believer and supporter of this organization.” He went on to recount several builds and the camaraderie of working with his fellow co-workers and the Habitat homeowners. “It’s the smiles on the people’s faces, especially the kids. And I watch them at the dedications, so excited that they have their own rooms, their own house, their own yard. That’s what continues to build me up. That’s what makes me do what I can.”
