Volunteers from Great Western Bank work at Repair Affair 2017

Great Western Bank Sponsors 2017 Repair Affair

Great Western Bank employees teamed up once again this year with the Home Builders Association of the Sioux Empire to help make a difference for some deserving homeowners in need of accessibility improvements.  

Since 1993, more than 200 Repair Affair projects have been completed with over 5,000 volunteer hours. As the event Main Sponsor, Great Western Bank provides lunch and much-needed volunteers to help at nine project locations throughout the Sioux Empire and Brandon.

Repairs included wheelchair ramps, grab bar installations, adding railings to stairways, replacing knob faucets with levers, and so on. The repairs are done at no cost to the homeowner.

This is the third year that Great Western Bank has sponsored the event. More than 20 employees took part in this year’s volunteer efforts. GWB Repair Affair Project Coordinator Chris Knight said this is an event he looks forward to each year.

“It’s always a great day when you can help someone else and be part of a successful community service project,” Knight said. “We love to see the smiles on the homeowners' faces when our projects are completed. Repair Affair just gets better year after year.”
