Wells Fargo Supports Habitat for Humanity in Wyoming
Company donates $120,000 over four years to The Heart of Wyoming chapter, helping build eight homes and counting
CASPER, WY – Habitat for Humanity, The Heart of Wyoming is delighted to recognize Wells Fargo’s ongoing support through a new Wells Fargo BuildsSM $30,000 grant. Funding will enable the construction of two additional homes at the Harris Crossing subdivision.
"I am so impressed with the Wells Fargo volunteers who make it a priority to come back to the Habitat build site for each family we partner with," tells Habitat's Executive Director, Heidi Maldoon. "It's both the generous financial gifts and the hard work of volunteers that allows for our families to construct their quality new homes."
Year after year, Wells Fargo provides financial and volunteer backing to Habitat homes under construction in Natrona County. Donning red volunteer shirts, many Wells Fargo team members have contributed to four homes in the neighborhood.
“With every build day, a local family is closer to their dream of owning a home,” said Shari Knoll, Wells Fargo region bank president. “Our team is passionate about supporting Habitat for Humanity, creating affordable housing opportunity and helping Wyoming community members become homeowners.”
The Wells Fargo Builds grant program provides financial assistance when Wells Fargo volunteers help build, renovate, paint or repair a home for low-to-moderate income households.
