Last year, Wells Fargo & Company and the National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH), announced an up to $850,000 commitment over three years through the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation to help launch the “Healthy Housing Challenge.” This initiative seeks to improve the homes of seniors, veterans and low-income families currently living in homes with potential safety and health threats. Rebuilding Together, a nonprofit dedicated to creating safe and healthy housing for America’s families, is leading the home improvement work on the 1,500 homes. This year, Wells Fargo team members are committed to completing thirteen projects and serving at least 800 volunteer hours in support of the Healthy Housing Challenge.
“This work directly aligns with the vision and values we all share as Wells Fargo team members,” said Chairman and CEO John Stumpf. “I couldn’t be prouder that the team who serves our customers so well and so consistently all year long also is generous in supporting the larger community. In the end, what matters most is that our dollars and time are put to use in making life better for people and their families.”
This aligns with the Housing Foundation’s Team Member Volunteer Program which provides financial support to nonprofit organizations when team members help build, renovate, paint or repair a home for low-to moderate-income (LMI) people. Since its inception, the Program has mobilized more than 192,000 volunteers to build or refurbish 5,000 homes in low-to-moderate income communities.
Congratulations Wells Fargo & Company!
