A band of volunteers from the Sellgren Financial Group of Wells Fargo Advisors LLC, on Professional Court in Hagerstown, recently descended on Habitat for Humanity’s Veterans Build work site on Lexington Avenue in Hagerstown.  

They put in a full day of volunteer labor and brought along with them a $10,000 check from the Wells Fargo Foundation for Habitat. 

This is the third consecutive year that the Sellgren group has volunteered its time and talents to assist Habitat for Humanity of Washington County in the fight against poverty housing in Washington County. This year, the group installed vinyl siding on the three-bedroom, one-bath house that will become home to Habitat’s partner family headed by Joyce Brooks. 

This project is unique in the fact that the house was originally framed on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., by veterans, as well as current active members from all branches of the U.S. armed forces.

The house was dismantled and trucked to Washington County, where it is becoming affordable housing for a qualified, low-income partner family.
