Rebuild Upstate receives $10,000 grant from Wells Fargo
Rebuild Upstate recently received a $10,000 donation from Wells Fargo to support the repairs of three homes in the Upstate. Rebuild Upstate receives public and private funds to support home repairs across Greenville, Anderson, Pickens, and Oconee counties. Through its work, the organization hopes to raise awareness of the need for more affordable housing in Upstate communities.
“We are thrilled to support Rebuild Upstate in their efforts to strengthen our communities,” said Wells Fargo District Manager and Rebuild Upstate Advisory Board Member Ryan Twitty. “This helps demonstrate Wells Fargo’s ongoing commitment to helping provide affordable housing in our region and promote long-term economic prosperity for everyone in our communities. If our communities prosper, we all prosper.”
In 2019, Rebuild Upstate repaired 163 homes that resulted from 478 total home repair projects. This was made possible through community support, especially with the help of 1,218 volunteers. Rebuild Upstate has grown by over 2,000% since 2012 to ensure more homes are safe and healthy for local residents.
“We are incredibly thankful for companies like Wells Fargo who are investing in making lives better throughout our community,” said Chris Manley, Rebuild Upstate’s President/CEO and Founder. “We can only help people in our community with the commitment of companies, individuals, churches, and others stepping up to play a part. We’re thankful for Wells Fargo doing just that.”
