The Bend Area Habitat for Humanity will receive a substantial donation from Wells Fargo to build two affordable homes.  The Wells Fargo's Housing Foundation announces they will donate about $345,000 to eight habitat for humanities in Oregon and southwest Washington to support the construction of about 15 homes. The Bend Area Habitat will receive about $30,000 and 212 volunteer hours from the company. Over 550 Wells Fargo volunteers have worked to raise walls, paint, landscape and other construction projects in the past year. The money earmarked for the Bend Area Habitat for Humanity will go to help build two affordable homes for low to moderate income residents. Robin Cooper with Habitat says the donation is coming at a great time. “It is definitely an incredible gift especially with our economy. We aren't seeing the same donations, so the fact they've able to donate that much is really helping us out with two of our houses. We're very appreciative.” The two homes are scheduled to be ready for families early next year.
