“I have not been the same since,” says Bill. “I was bit by the Nicaraguan bug and have grown to love the people, especially the children we met there. It has been a delight to work with CT Quest for Peace.”
A native of Indianapolis, Bill lived in Northern Kentucky from age 2-10 years and has resided in Connecticut since 1965. He attended Catholic elementary schools, graduated from Fairfield Prep, and received a BS in Chemical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
For the last 36 years Bill has owned and operated the William Evans Painting Company in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The company manages a wide variety of residential, commercial and industrial painting projects.
Seven years ago, “I volunteered,” recalls Bill, “to drive around Connecticut for a couple of days to pick up donated materials” to be sent to Nicaragua. Today Bill’s 8,000 square foot company warehouse serves as the storage center for CT Quest’s humanitarian aid cargo. It is perennially overflowing with donations earmarked for Nicaragua.
“We give so much,” says Bill, adding, “But we get back much more.”
