— Walden Savings Bank, a community bank based in the heart of the Hudson Valley, is a longtime partner of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh and is the lead sponsor for its upcoming ‘Walk for Housing’ event.

The event, which will take place Sunday, April 27, will raise funds and community awareness to help Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh meet its goal of building 75 homes by June. Registration for the event starts at 1 p.m., while the walk itself will begin at 2 p.m. The route will take walkers past previously constructed homes, as well as a few structures that are currently in progress.

“Walden Savings Bank has a long-standing tradition of supporting its communities and our involvement with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh has become something of a long-term relationship,” said Derrik Wynkoop, president and CEO of Walden Savings Bank. “We are very excited about the upcoming ‘Walk for Housing’ event and remain committed to our partnership with Habitat-Newburgh in order to help make a difference in the lives of those who may need a helping hand in our region.”

In addition to its participation in the walk, Walden Savings Bank also provides leadership for training and education on home-buying classes and establishes home mortgages for people who will reside in the houses that Habitat-Newburgh builds. Walden Savings Bank has closed numerous loans for Habitat clients over the last several years.

“By working with Habitat-Newburgh, we are able to help our friends and neighbors finance affordable homes,” said Ana Tranchina, mortgage originator. “Our work with Habitat for Humanity exemplifies the commitment and passion we have for helping people in our community.”
