Wells Fargo has partnered with Wyoming Valley Habitat for Humanity to build a house in Edwardsville to help a family achieve the dream of home ownership. Wells Fargo contributed $35,000 and 600 hours of volunteer labor. Teams of employees spent many hours framing walls, setting roof trusses and sheeting the roof. Habitat families are selected based on level of need, willingness to become partners in the Habitat program and the ability to repay a no-interest, 20-year mortgage. At the site, from left, first row: Michael Fly; Bob Long; Mike Rotell; Kevin Engelman; Greg Collins, area president, Wells Fargo; Karen Evans Kaufer, executive director, Wyoming Valley Habitat for Humanity; Dawn Hapeman, volunteer coordinator, Wyoming Valley Habitat for Humanity; Mike Pisarcik; and Bob Sherlinski, site supervisor, Wyoming Valley Habit for Humanity. Second row: Andrea Stelma, Bernie Stelma, Maria Kelly, Judy Jones, Sara Hogan, Jamie Kintz and Jennifer Rosario.
