(West Plains) – West Plains Bank and Trust Company recently made a $6,000 donation to fund the purchase of a residential lot to be used by the West Plains Area chapter of Habitat for Humanity’s 25th home building project.
Ground will be broken on the lot, located at 710 South Howell Street, West Plains, in 2014 marking the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the group’s first project.
According to West Plains Bank and Trust Company President and Chief Operating Officer David M. Gohn, the purchase of this lot is a continuation of the Bank’s commitment to support Habitat for Humanity in the local area, adding that as one of the largest home loan lending institutions in the area, it is a mission of West Plains Bank and Trust Company to help as many local residents as possible move into quality housing.
West Plains Area Chapter of Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Craig King said this latest donation helps ease the burden associated with acquiring expensive and often difficult-to-find residential lots.
