Habitat for Humanity Receives $15K Donation from Wells Fargo for New Home
Wells Fargo recently donated $15,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln (www.lincolnhabitat.org) to help a local low-income family build strength, stability, self-reliance, and shelter. On Saturday, September 13, a group of Wells Fargo volunteers volunteered their time to frame the walls in preparation for the wall raising that was held on Saturday, November 10 at 6345 Garland St.
“We are so thankful for the continued financial support from Wells Fargo,” says Josh Hanshaw, executive director for Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln. “Wells Fargo always goes beyond their donation with a full group of employees ready to volunteer on the build site.”
The Wells Fargo sponsored house is the future home for Fawaz, Maha, and their three young children. They currently rent one-half of a trailer, which is the size of an efficiency apartment. They are looking forward to moving into their first-home, raising their children in a stable neighborhood and becoming great neighbors.
