Habitat For HumanityRAPID CITY, S.D. – Wells Fargo has made a $7.75 million donation to Habitat for Humanity. The donation is split up between all of the different locations across the country.

The Black Hills Area Habitat for Humanity received $30,000 and they already have plans for what to do with it. The grant will help to build two, three-bedroom, one-bathroom homes.

The goal of Habitat for Humanity is to help build houses for people who can’t afford to buy one. The assistance is available to people that go through their program consisting of credit management and home maintenance training, as well as putting sweat equity hours to build the home.

The help from Habitat for Humanity is very important as one out of every 11 South Dakotans are spending more than half of their income on housing.
