Currently Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Utah has two projects under construction. The Wells Fargo Team arrived to assist with volunteer efforts on the home and present a check. The funds presented are specifically designated for the remodel of the Falaniko family home. According to Director of Development & Community Relations, Bonnie Hallman, notes, “The painting efforts of the Wells Fargo Team will help the project stay on schedule and allow the Falaniko family to move in to their new home just in time for the new school year. This is an exciting time! Habitat volunteers are essential and so valuable to the process. Thank you Wells Fargo for your gift, not only of time from your team members, but the significant financial contribution to the Falaniko family!”
Wells Fargo Housing Foundation is committed to the development of affordable housing and offers grants to sustain such endeavors. According to Wells Fargo Housing Foundation website, “we believe everyone deserves a decent, safe place to call home”. Founded in 1993, the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation is committed to increasing low- to moderate-income homeownership through the development of affordable housing.
This natural partnership between Wells Fargo Housing Foundation and Habitat for Humanity was facilitated by Habitat’s previous Executive Director, Micheal Gburski . Misty Klatt, the New Executive Director remarks, “Big Kudos go to Mike and Wells Fargo for making this a reality and continuing to partner together to combat poverty housing in our community”.
