Habitat for Humanity – Española Valley and Los Alamos was awarded a $15,000 grant from Wells Fargo Housing Foundation.
The award is part of Wells Fargo’s mission “to build stronger communities by investing and volunteering in support of neighborhood revitalization efforts … to create affordable and sustainable housing for low-to-moderate income families, seniors and veterans.”
Wells Fargo Bank Community Engagement Coordinator Mike Sedillo and Española Wells Fargo Bank Branch Manager Jeannette Chavez said they looked forward to working with Habitat EVLA on its 2017 house build.
Chavez has worked with Habitat for Humanity in Santa Fe in previous years.
“We have numerous employees who are excited about actually building a house from the ground up,” Chavez said.
Team Wells Fargo will lead the volunteers for the official kickoff for the 2017 Build on Saturday. Team Wells Fargo will also participate in Habitat for Humanity’s annual Women’s Build the weekend before Mother’s Day.
