According to Trinity Lutheran’s Marti Peterson, children put the first bricks on the house as part of the kick-off on the first Sunday of the Challenge as the council members contributed enough for them to each be able to put on a brick. During Sunday School, they made little house banks that are on the tables to collect loose change. They all received hard hats a couple of Sundays later for their construction work.They are also making flowers for the house. (Submitted photo)
