MidCountry Bank Makes Contribution to Veteran Project Partnership with Rebuilding Together Twin Cities

MidCountry Bank has been a long-time partner of Rebuilding Together Twin Cities, with contributions of time, talent and financial support reaching back over 12 years.  While the partnership between MidCountry Bank and Rebuilding Together is not new, the focus of Veteran projects is a first for MidCountry. As part of the partnership, the $50,000 cash donation from MidCountry to Rebuilding Together in December provides funding for a home repair projects benefitting Veteran homeowners in need.

Team members of MidCountry are eager to apply the company values of Compassion, Honesty, Integrity, Excellence, and Fairness to a Rebuilding Together/MidCountry Bank joint project when it kicks off in the spring. Under the guidance of our program managers, a project site will be selected in the coming months. MidCountry will provide overall project management support, as well as over 400 hours of volunteer work to complete the tasks that will help make life for the selected Veteran better.

Greg Krenz, President of MidCountry Mortgage shares that “MidCountry is honored to have the opportunity to give back to our community through this partnership with Rebuilding Together Twin Cities. Extending our support to Veterans who have given so much to not only their community, but to our Country, is simply the right thing to do.”

MidCountry Bank is a full-service bank headquartered in Bloomington, MN.  With 14 branch locations in Minnesota, MidCountry actively engages in its communities to provide high quality, diversified financial services and solutions for consumer and business clients.  A comprehensive scope of banking, cash management, equipment leasing, mortgage insurance and investment products, tools and services make us a solid financial ally.

Wells Fargo and Rebuilding Together Partner to Help Small Businesses!

Small business is a big deal in Minneapolis. It is important to the business owners, their customers, and the neighborhoods in which they’re located. The Wells Fargo Works for Small Business®: Neighborhood Renovation Program Contest is about helping small businesses thrive. Wells Fargo and Rebuilding Together Twin Cities, along with a team from MSR Design, recently renovated four small businesses in designated economic development focus areas in Minneapolis.

Hope and Healing Family Counseling, LLC was the Grand Prize winner of the Wells Fargo Works for Small Business Contest. Rebuilding Together Twin Cities and employee volunteers from Wells Fargo enhanced this important small business by turning the office’s unfinished space into three new therapy rooms and building an accessible and ADA-approved entryway.

Three additional finalists also received assistance with renovations: Mississippi Mushrooms, Ibrahim Restaurant, and Wendy’s House of SOUL.  To read more about this program and the winners, please click here.  Congratulations to all four small businesses and thank you to Wells Fargo for supporting their work!
