Wells Fargo has donated $15,000 to the Paterson Habitat for Humanity to help build homes for low-to-moderate income families.
Funds will be used to support the construction of a new home on Clinton Street.
“We could not do the work we do without partners like Wells Fargo,” said Scott Millard, Paterson Habitat’s CEO. “Their commitment is what enables us to move our mission forward. Now more than ever before, a safe, stable and affordable place to call home is critical to our health and safety.”
The grant is part of a $7.75 million donation by Wells Fargo to Habitat for Humanity International. Paterson Habitat is among more than 220 Habitat organizations across the United States to receive grant funding from the bank.
“Far too many people across the country are facing housing affordability issues and one of our key priorities is to create solutions so everyone can have a safe place to call home,” said Fred Bertoldo, Wells Fargo community bank region president for Northern New Jersey. “We are proud to support Habitat for Humanity’s efforts to provide homeownership opportunities for hundreds of families locally and nationwide through Wells Fargo Builds.”
Paterson Habitat for Humanity has been building homes in Paterson’s 1st and 4th wards to provide high-quality housing to families and promote homeownership.
