Building Homes for Deserving Families
PUBLISHED JULY 13, 2019
Our volunteers are no stranger to rolling up their sleeves to help our community! In partnership with San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity, the bank recently hosted a Team Build Day to help construct a home for two hardworking, low-income families in Pasadena.
In addition to paying an affordable mortgage and receiving financial education, the beneficiary families invest hundreds of hours of their own labor working alongside volunteers like ours to build their home.
Amidst the heat of the day, our hardworking volunteers put up panelling, installed roofing, and even mixed/poured concrete for the two homes- all which bring these deserving families one step closer to having a place to call their own.
Thank you to Team East West Bank for directly making affordable housing possible!
