Personnel from Wells Fargo banks in LaGrange and Shipshewana gathered to present a check for $15,000 to Mont Arnold, executive director of LaGrange County Habitat for Humanity. The original $10,000 grant from the Wells Fargo Housing Foundationwas amended to include an additional $5,000 awarded because House Number 22 was built to “green” specifications and received an “Energy Star” rating.
“LCHFH and its board of directors wish to extend a big thanks to the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation and the local Wells Fargo team for helping to sponsor this house,” Arnold commented. LaGrange County Wells Fargo employees provided 63 volunteer hours at the home site during its construction process.
This is the fourth grant that LCHFH has received from the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation.
