"Banking" on Good Cause!

Wells Fargo employees endured the heat this past Friday to help Habitat staff members roof and side a Habitat home currently being built in Lehi with the Sandoval family. The volunteers also started building the carport. Through Wells Fargo's Team Leader Program, the bank provides funding to build area Habitat homes and Habitat provides bank employees with "team building" opportunities at local construction sites. We love our partnership with Well Fargo and appreciate their continued support!

Welcome Summer!

Habitat partner families and staff celebrated the beginning of summer with our annual summer party on Thursday, June 28th at the Lehi Outdoor Pool. Everyone had a great time swimming, diving, sliding, rock climbing, and eating lots of square donuts despite the windy weather.









Local Habitat Hosts Nationwide Learning Exchange

Habitat for Humanity of Utah County welcomed staff and board members from other Habitat affiliates throughout the country to Utah County on Thursday, June 28th and Friday, June 29th. The local Habitat collaborated with Habitat International to host a two-day learning exchange on home repair at the Utah Valley Home Builders Association in Orem. Special thanks to Walter Fields for facilitating the course and to the UVHBA for providing the workshop space.



Time to Picnic!

Habitat for Humanity of Utah County and Provo Community Policing hosted its first Police Picnic of the summer at the Littlefield's home in Provo’s Timp Neighborhood! Those in attendance enjoyed a picnic meal while sharing concerns with their Provo Community Police Officer and other officers on the local police force. They also had the opportunity to learn about Habitat's Neighborhood Revitalization Programs. If you live in downtown Provo and would be interested in hosting one of these important crime prevention events, contact David at (801) 344-8527 or dwright@habitatuc.org.

Parades are "Berry" Fun!

It was a fun day at Pleasant Grove's Strawberry Days Parade on Saturday, June 23rd! Habitat partner families and other volunteers walked alongside our "red float" and passed out flyers and taffy to parade goers to help promote Habitat's local programs and ReStores. We love parade season! Special thanks to Val Cope for driving the float and to the Burgess family for coordinating volunteers. We could still use walkers for upcoming parades in American Fork, Spanish Fork, and Payson. Contact LeAnn at (801) 368-2250 or leann@habitatuc.org to sign up or for more information.
