It was a big day for the Habitat for Humanity group in Dodge Center.

Wells Fargo Bank presented a check for $10,000 to the Dodge Center Habitat for Humanity.

"It is incredibly important to Wells Fargo as a company and to the team members here at the bank as individuals to support our community," Crystal Sveen, branch manager of Wells Fargo in Dodge Center, said. "So we are all excited."

She explained that a part of getting the money from the Wells Fargo Housing Fund was that the team members in Dodge Center had to commit to a minimum of 60 total hours as a group for volunteer labor.

"We have to work for the money that we are getting," she said. "We will be wearing jeans and 'Wells Fargo Volunteer' shirts. There will be opportunities for more hours if we choose - and we will. I am very excited."

The Habitat for Humanity team will make a schedule for the volunteers for this summer. The first volunteers will begin their work next week.

Sveen added that she grew up in a small town and she is glad to be part of a small community again.

Wells Fargo also contributed $400 to Faith in Action, a group that helps elderly people get jobs done that they would otherwise have to pay for. It is a non-denominational group of churches working together.

And Wells Fargo gave $600 to Relay for Life, a county-wide program that raises money for cancer research.

"We will have a team that walks," Sveen said. "This is something else I am incredibly happy to be a part of. It's awesome. Jill Moosbrugger, our service manager, and I are proud to lead these teams. It is going to be a very exciting summer. This is our - the bank's - community and it is important to us."
