Old National Bank builds home for Vietnam refugees

More than 50 associates and partners from Old National Bank rolled up their sleeves to frame an entire Habitat home in their parking lot on the morning of Friday, May 10.
Starting at 8:30 a.m., the parking lot at Old National Bank, 2929 N. Sherman Ave. in Madison, transformed into a Habitat for Humanity of Dane County construction site.
Old National Bank volunteers built all of the interior and exterior walls for the house, which will be eventually be located at 3822 Eliot Lane on Madison’s northside. The future homeowners, Yia and Chor, worked alongside the Old National volunteers building their home.
Yia and Chor have three children, two boys and a girl. They are looking forward to having their own home and playing outside in their yard.
Before the day was done all of the completed walls were stood up just as they will be once they’re moved to their permanent location on Eliot Lane.
“With 14 locations throughout Dane County, Old National Bank is a community leader and in the business of making homeownership dreams come true for their customers every day,” said Valerie Renk, Habitat for Humanity of Dane County CEO. “We are so grateful for their support.”
