Every morning, Dorothy Hendricks from Green Valley enjoys her breakfast on her patio overlooking her beautiful plants and flowers. 

Unfortunately, her patio needs a lot of work. 



For many years, Hendricks had repair work that needed to be done, but it would take time and a lot of money. 

That's until Wells Fargo, and Habitat Tucson showed up to her Green Valley home to take part of the 100 veterans initiative. 

"Working with veterans across the United States to help rebuild homes, landscape, paint or anything we can do to help make their home a lot better," says Sarah Price, Branch Manager at Wells Fargo. 



With more than 10 volunteers, tools, and material - the team was able to renovate the patio area. 



"Originally, when we showed up the patio had water damage, was rotten and was very old," said Luis Zozaya, Home repair supervisor with Habitat Tucson. 

Dorothy says, "you can't imagine what a great feeling it is to go out and sit under the patio and have my breakfast."
