Wells Fargo workers, Habitat for Humanity put finishing touches on Helena homes

A team of volunteers gathered in a Westside Helena neighborhood last week to put the finishing touches on two houses that will give local families a place to call home.

People came to 1000 Choteau St. on Friday to help put the finishing touches on a Habitat for Humanity home.

Among them were Wells Fargo employees, whose company gave Helena Area Habitat for Humanity $25,000 to be used to install solar panels on each of the two houses at 1000 Choteau St.

Employee volunteers were also helping Habitat workers put the final touches on the homes, such as plants in the yard.

Friday was the first day of the 2022 Parade of Homes event, which included the Choteau homes as part of the tour.

Samantha Stringer, whose husband and four children will join her in the larger of the two homes, stopped by Friday to help pick sites where to place the plants.

“It’s very lovely,” she said of the home. “They did an amazing job.”
