Ridgefield, CT – March 1, 2017: Fairfield County Bank donated $5,000 to the Housatonic Habitat for Humanity, a program that helps low-income residents and senior citizen homeowners stay in their homes by offering repairs and modifications. “We are proud to support the Housatonic Habitat for Humanity.  They do great work in our communities to ensure home ownership is affordable to families in need,” said Dan Berta, President of Fairfield County Bank.

The donated money will be used to fund the construction of new affordable homes and to repair or maintain the condition of current homes. Volunteers give their time for the construction and repairs of the homes while local businesses and industry professionals donate materials and other services.

The Housatonic Habitat for Humanity is in its 26th year of operation. They will be building their 28th low-cost home this year and continue with their extensive home repair program.
