SHERIDAN, Colo. (CBS4) – One Colorado family got the keys to a home they can now call their own thanks to volunteers at Anadarko and Habitat for Humanity. The project was capped off with a celebration in Sheridan on Wednesday.

Teagan Anderson had been waiting for this day her entire life.

More than 200 employees donated their time and hard work to build a home for Teagan and her daughters. Anadarko has been working with Habitat for Humanity for more than 10 years.

This is the 13th house they’ve helped build in Colorado.

“We love supporting the communities in which we live and work. We love to be able to contribute,” said Director of Regulatory and External Affairs for Anadarko, Cindy Allen.

“They’ve been an amazing help in this dream of ours.”

The company hopes this will be a big help for Teagan, and she knows it will be.
