Last month, Habitat for Humanity Tucson and Wells Fargo worked together to improve 100 homes alongside veterans.

  • Wells Fargo: Habitat for Humanity Tucson and Wells Fargo joined forces in January to improve 100 homes alongside veterans. Wells Fargo team members have volunteered more than 315,000 hours to build and improve more than 2,100 Habitat homes with low-income homeowners, seniors and veterans since 2010. The Wells Fargo Housing Foundation donated more than $44 million from 2010-2016 to Habitat locally and nationally, of which $14 million has supported national programs with Habitat for Humanity International.
  • Caliber Collision and Geico: The two companies, in partnership with the National Auto Body Council’s Recycled Rides program, have teamed up to repair and donate a vehicle to a Tucson veteran or military service member in need. Geico is donating the vehicle, which is being refurbished by Caliber Collision. The Tucson recipient will be presented with the vehicle in March. Nominations for veterans, active duty service members and Gold Star family members are being accepted now through Feb. 14. Nominees must have a valid driver’s license, be able to obtain and maintain insurance, and demonstrate financial need. For more information, visit
