Milwaukee County Supervisor Russell W. Stamper II was proud to be on hand Monday as Habitat for Humanity kicked off construction of its 500th home in Milwaukee, located at 2228 N. 40th Street in the 5th Supervisory District.

“I’d like to extend a big thanks to Habitat for Humanity and Wells Fargo for reaching this milestone of 500 homes built or rehabbed in Milwaukee. Home ownership promotes a sense of pride and community commitment,” Supervisor Stamper said. “This is consistent with my goal of ensuring affordable and sustainable home ownership. I deeply appreciate this investment in the 5th District community and congratulate Renee Walls on her future home.”

The week of June 18-22 is a Blitz Build week, and the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation donated $50,000 and more than 500 volunteer hours to make Habitat for Humanity’s 500th house in Milwaukee a reality. Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity will be building seven homes during the June Blitz Build in the Washington Park neighborhood.
