Youth Shantytown

Youth from Faith Lutheran Church went to the Habitat for Humanity Shantytown event in Lodi, WI during a night in May. Shantytown is meant to provide the youth with an experience of what is like to be homeless. They ate a meal of soup and bread and built Shanties out of cardboard boxes and spent the night in their new homes. The event also included activities with other youth from other area churches. This year the group raised over $1000 that was given to Habitat. The youth would like to thank Pastor Lisa and the other adults for spending the night with them. Check You Tube for videos of last years event. Links can be found on the Out- Reach page.
