Wells Fargo donates $35K to Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County

by Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County

WILMINGTON – Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County (HFHNCC) received a $35,000 donation from the Wells Fargo Builds program to support neighborhood revitalization on the Eastside of Wilmington. The grant will assist low-income families by building affordable homes, providing critical repairs to preserve homeownership and organizing neighborhood revitalization projects.

This month, Wells Fargo employees volunteered on the Eastside of Wilmington to clean up public spaces and installed: 31 smoke detectors, 33 ring doorbells, 32 motion detector lights, and 36 flower boxes.

“As homeownership remains out of reach for too many families, we’re proud of our long-standing work with Habitat for Humanity – both here in New Castle and nationally – to increase the supply of affordable homes,” Stephen Briggs, vice president of community relations for Wells Fargo, said in a statement. “Volunteering with Habitat has always been a huge source of pride for our employees, and we’re excited to put on our hard hats to help families start a new journey in their lives as homeowners – a key part to building intergenerational wealth.”
