“Our partnership with Wells Fargo is helping to build vibrant communities across our city,” said Frank Monaghan, executive director for Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia. “Working in Point Breeze, South West Philly, and Sharswood, Wells Fargo team members are contributing 350 volunteer hours, and financial support of $60,000, giving four more Habitat families a safe, affordable place to call home.”
Phil Patrone, loan team manager and senior vice president for Wells Fargo Commercial Banking and bank employee volunteers tackled tasks such as removing an elevator, wooden framing and scrap metal, as well as taking on a few landscaping projects.
“The Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia slogan is Building Houses, Building Hope, Building Philadelphia. After the July volunteer event, I would add ‘Building Teams,’ too,” said Patrone, – who is also a Habitat for Humanity board member. “Sixteen Wells Fargo team members worked in 95-degree weather to assist Habitat in building a dream for someone. These builds are about contributing to someone who might never own a home were it not for Habitat and companies like Wells Fargo that make financial contributions and provide paid time off to team members to volunteer.”
