Holy Trinity Lutheran Church is sponsoring the 2013 "Home for Christmas" project. Their generous donation is enabling the construction of a two-story, four bedroom home for the Haythe family. This house will be 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, NovaTech, and Nolen & Frisa.
Volunteers are always needed, even for sponsored builds. If you'd like to get involved, please call Susan at 434.528.3774.
