Investing in Affordable Housing

This past Sunday, Bill Mersch of Habitat for Humanity came to speak with our congregation about the importance of affordable homes. Despite the lackwallraising-Medieros-Feb-2013-461-1024x576 of any boards to buy at our “Buy-a-Board” event afterwards, WCUC members and friends contributed a total of $1,600 for affordable housing.  We’ve already received a gracious letter thanking us  for strengthening families and communities. Our gifts will be combined with those from other faith communities to build a house as part of the Lowell Revitalization Project.

Thanks to everyone who participated in learning and giving! Learn more about our local chapter of Habitat for Humanity here.
