Demario Mills was introduced to the SECU Family House on January 19, 2022. He volunteered with the City of Winston-Salem as a part of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service.
He was drawn to the Family House because of its “atmosphere and good people.” He says you get the “feeling like you are at home” at the Family House. Maybe that is why he keeps coming back to volunteer month after month, because he is a part of our family.
Demario was born and raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and has been employed by the city of Winston-Salem for over 25 years. It’s this sense of loyalty and dedication that you see in all of Demario’ activities.
While not a glamorous volunteer role, Demario helps with the maintenance and behind the scenes nuts and bolts that keep the Family House operating smoothly. He cleans AC and refrigerator filters, dusting and replacing the light fixtures, checking cabinetry for stability, and on and on and on. The Family House is a more safe and secure place because of the time and energy Demario devotes to its upkeep.
