WCUC Builds with Habitat!

We are overwhelmed with gratitude for all the members and friends, old and new, young and not-so-young, who all came together to raise money for affordable housing in our church’s neighborhood. We set some big goals: 60 individuals or households giving, and a $20,000 total gift. Thanks to your generosity, we exceeded both of our goals with 92 givers and $29,067.29! Here are some photos of the offering collection and dedication. Stay tuned for opportunities to build and plant in the summer and fall…

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.
