GO-FUND-ME FOR TINY HOUSE
Trinity Lutheran Church is joining five other South Whidbey Churches and three community groups in sponsoring a charming campus of nine tiny homes in Langley. This tiny home community will provide affordable housing for South Whidbey Island workers. This will not solve the crisis in affordable housing entirely, but it will be a part of the solution. Trinity Lutheran Church has pledged to raise $30,000 to support this effort. We invite you to join us in providing beautiful affordable housing for your neighbors. 100% of the money raised will go to this project.
Contact the church office at 360-331-5191 if you would like to sign up to help with this build. Rocky Knickerbocker and Gary Guernsey are coordinating the project. Follow the link to donate through GoFundMe, then share the link to your social media pages!
