Holy Trinity Lutheran Church sponsored the 2013 "Home for Christmas" project. Their generous donation is enabled the construction of a two-story, three bedroom home for the Nakia Haythe family. This house was the BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT EVER!
The inaugural "Engineers' Build" is underway for the Bryant family. National and local engineering firms have collaborated to sponsor a three bedroom home. Heartfelt thanks go to AREVA, American Electric Power, Southern-Air, Wiley-Wilson, System One Holdings, NovaTech, Nolen & Frisa, and Master Engineers and Designers .
Volunteers are always needed, even for sponsored builds. If you'd like to get involved, please call Susan at 434.528.3774.
