On Sept. 19, 14 employees from various branches of Wells Fargo Bank throughout the county rolled up their sleeves and started work on a new Habitat home for a family in Fruitland Park. Soon to be homeowners, Lovely and Jethro came out to greet and thank the volunteers as well as work alongside them.
To kick off the work day, Lake-Sumter District Manager of Wells FargoBryan Cornell presented a check for $10,000 on behalf of the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation to assist in funding the home.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have Wells Fargo as a sponsor of this home. Without committed volunteers and community partners such as Wells we wouldn’t be able to achieve our mission of providing affordable housing,” said Kent Adcock, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter, Florida.
The Wells team members cleared the yard of fallen trees, filling an entire extra large dumpster to the brim to prep the site for the next few months of building. They also measured, trimmed, and prepared a trailer full of headers and jacks that will soon become windows and doors.
