Roseburg volunteers help build tiny home veterans village - 11/06/18

Oakland, Oregon, Nov. 6, 2018 – With support from the Wells Fargo Foundation, Operation Tiny Home will host a construction workshop on Nov. 8-10 in Oakland, Oregon where veterans will build a 480 Square Foot “tiny home”, the first of two that the organization has committed to build to help address veteran homelessness. The homes will launch Valiant Seed Veterans Village, a new project in Roseburg, OR that will provide housing and supportive services to veterans struggling with housing instability.

Operation Tiny Home, a nonprofit organization, partners with like-minded nonprofits across the United States to provide skills training workshops for veterans that produce custom high-quality tiny housing solutions as part of a cohesive supportive services program for low-income and combat-wounded veterans. The organization’s Building a Better Future program empowers veterans to build a better future for themselves and their fellow veterans through tiny-home-building workshops that cultivate sustainable communities and lasting transformation in veteran housing stability.

Zack Giffin, co-host of the FYI TV network show “Tiny House Nation,” will lead the three-day workshop. The workshop will teach construction and carpentry skills to 35 veterans and community volunteers who will build the first tiny home for the Valiant Seed Veterans Village in Roseburg. A project of the nonprofit organization Valiant Seed, the village will be a self-sustaining, eco-friendly community of tiny houses for veterans that incorporates services such as health care and job training.

“Operation Tiny Home is built on partnerships and it’s what we do together that makes the greatest impact,” said Gabrielle Rapport, Chairman and Executive Director of Operation Tiny Home. “together with Wells Fargo we couldn’t be happier to bring the community together to support the Valiant Seed Veterans Village as they lead the way to providing much needed affordable housing and supportive services to female veterans in Douglas County.”

The Wells Fargo Foundation’s National Housing Grant Program donated $55,000 for this project, and Wells Fargo team members will volunteer in support roles during the workshop. Since 2012, Wells Fargo Foundation housing philanthropy programs have provided more than $15 million in grants to support sustainable housing for veterans.

“Everyone deserves a safe and secure place to live, especially our veterans, who have already sacrificed so much for our country,” said Jeff Chavannes, military community programs manager for the Wells Fargo Foundation, and an Army veteran. “This grant is just one way Wells Fargo is doing our part to serve them. We are proud to support the work that Operation Tiny Home and Valiant Seed are doing for veterans in this community.”

On Nov. 11, Zack Giffin and the Operation Tiny Home team will showcase a tiny home on wheels built for a disabled veteran as part of their Veteran Housing Program during the Douglas County Veterans Day parade, one of the largest Veterans Day parades in Oregon.

Corbett Education Foundation Awarded $10,000 Grant in Honor of Corbett High Alumnus (Photo) - 10/22/18

PORTLAND, OR – (Oct. 22, 2018) – Wells Fargo Administrative Assistant Debbie Granberg has been honored as a 2018 Wells Fargo Volunteer Service Award winner, earning a $10,000 grant for the Corbett Education Foundation. The award — one of several Wells Fargo volunteer programs — recognizes team members who make an exceptional impact through volunteerism.

Granberg has diligently served as a Corbett Education Foundation (CEF) board member for 16 years, leading the all-volunteer nonprofit organization as board chair for the last four years. The $10,000 grant from Wells Fargo will allow CEF to enhance its Service Award given to Corbett High School students who demonstrate community leadership.

“When I got the news, I didn’t quite think I heard it right. It’s hard not to be ecstatic when you know that we’ll be able to provide 20 scholarships. It’s huge for us,” said Granberg.

In 2017, Granberg volunteered more than 600 hours with CEF, leading several fundraisers for the organization. Since it was founded in 2000, CEF has helped students achieve their career aspirations in all fields of study, dispersing more than 600 scholarships totaling $313,000.

Granberg is one of 191 U.S. and international Wells Fargo team members to be recognized with a Volunteer Service Award in 2018. Team members are encouraged to nominate their co-workers or themselves, and a committee of fellow team members chooses the winners based on the nominee’s dedication to the nonprofit, time volunteered, effectiveness of their work and the potential impact of the award on the community the nonprofit serves.

The nonprofits are invited to apply for grants from Wells Fargo ranging from $1,000 to $25,000. Nonprofits are receiving a total of $499,000 through the Volunteer Service Awards in 2018.

Volunteerism is a strong component of Wells Fargo’s culture. More than 45,000 team members belong to one of 140 Wells Fargo Volunteer Chapters across the world.
