Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) -- Wells Fargo has teamed up with Habitat for Humanity in Superior to help them finance and remodel a home.

Wells Fargo has given $20,000 to Habitat for humanity to help them remodel a home for a new home owner.

On Saturday, members from Wells Fargo helped paint siding and will continue to volunteer their time to the organization.

The house was moved from east superior to make way for a new Super One.

However, Habitat for humanity still needs to find a family to occupy the house.

"We are looking for folks that are earning enough and have shown good management in their debt of finances and things like that, that they are ready for home ownership, that big commitment but they are not earning so much that they can do it on their own," said Daryl Yankee, executive director of Western Lake Superior Habitat for Humanity.

He says they hope to find a family to move into the home by spring.
