August 23, 2019 (Baker, FL) Randy Wise Homes and United Bank were proud to split the proceeds from the sale of a Mill Creek Farms home to benefit the Taylor Haugen Foundation and the Special Forces Association, Chapter VII. On Friday, Randy Wise and Robert Jones presented checks in the amount of $50,534 each to the two organizations to give back to the community, and to honor the memory of a special young man and our Special Forces military and their families.

“We call this our Community Spirit House, as this project is another example of how our community comes together to assist local organizations to accomplish their missions and to do good. Bob Jones and his team at United Bank stepped up to donate the homesite the home is built on. We are thrilled with this partnership we have formed. We are extremely grateful for our local vendors and subcontractors who gave free or discounted services and products for the home. Our employees are the heart and soul of our company. We are very proud of the talented team of professionals that came together for this project. Their dedication, attention to detail and desire to exceed expectations is the driving force of our success,” remarked Randy Wise.

“We are honored to be a part of this charitable donation. Through this partnership, United Bank and Randy Wise Homes were able to further the mission of the Taylor Haugen Foundation and Special Forces Association, Chapter VII. Locally, the Taylor Haugen Foundation supported the Northview High School Chiefs football team, outfitting them with high tech performance protective rib shirts. At United Bank, we have a multi bottom line mission focused commitment to improve the lives of our customers by building resilient and vibrant communities in the areas we serve,” said Bob Jones, United Bank.

Special Forces Association President Amil Alvarez said, “Randy is an authentic and servant leader who always seeks to improve the community he is a part of. He is a great supporter of the military and through the years, has been instrumental in improving the lives of numerous active duty service members, veterans, and their families. The Special Forces Association appreciate his support and leadership.”

“There are just no words to describe Randy Wise’s passion, charity and selflessness.  He consistently and humbly does charitable works for the community and we are simply honored to be a recipient of his benevolence. And we thank Bob Jones and United Bank for supporting the outfitting of Northview High School Chiefs football team with abdominal protective gear,” stated Brian and Kathy Haugen.

The home, located at 1486 Mill Creek Drive is the Live Oak II floorplan and features 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2,618 square feet and is another Southern-style brick bungalow home in the rich, wooded area of Mill Creek Farms, where small-scale gardening, large 2/3 plus acre homesites, and a rural setting are enticing new home buyers.
