CASPER, Wyo. – First Interstate Bank has renewed its long-term commitment to serving local families in need of safe and affordable housing with a recent donation of $25,000. These funds will help support the construction of the two homes currently underway at Harris Crossing Subdivision. With the addition of this recent contribution, First Interstate Bank has helped fund the construction of eight Habitat homes in the past five years.
“First Interstate Bank has been an incredible supporter of ours and consistently supports all that we do,” said Heidi Maldoon, Executive Director for Habitat for Humanity, The Heart of Wyoming, Inc. “It’s partners like First Interstate Bank that make affordable housing tangible and pave the way out of poverty for low-income families.”
When families move out of substandard housing and into simple, decent, affordable homes, homeowners and their families frequently improve their health, educational attainment, safety, and personal wealth.
“We are proud to stand behind such an important community cause,” said Kermit Wille, First Interstate Market President in Casper. “I tip my hat to Habitat’s dedicated staff, loyal following of volunteers, and band of community partners who come together year after year to make our community a better place.”
Maldoon and her team are grateful for First Interstate’s continued support—a relationship built on mutual respect and admiration.
“For First Interstate, this commitment extends beyond monetary support as their employees whole-heartedly participate in multiple group build events, serve Habitat’s Board and committees, and support our annual fundraiser each year,” Maldoon said.
