Tri-Cities home builder to donate all proceeds from new house to charity
KENNEWICK, Wash. — A local construction company is building a house free of charge for a heartwarming reason.
Brett Lott Homes broke ground on a new house on Wednesday afternoon that they will be building in Kennewick. After the home is completely finished and sold off, the company will donate all the proceeds to two local charities, Elijah Family Homes and KC Help.
“How do you explain how good that feels?” Lott asked. “We’re excited, and when that time comes and we’re able to hand the money over to them, we definitely feel really good.”
KC Help lends hospital equipment for patients to use at home. Most of the time, the patients either can’t afford the equipment or their insurance won’t cover it. KC Help works with the patients so they are able to use the equipment as long as they need it.
Elijah Family Homes provides stable housing and support services to low income families who do not qualify for public housing, mainly due to past criminal convictions as a result of drug and/or alcohol addiction.
“We love to have some of this recognition from the community that helps bring awareness to our charity,” Michelle Hara, Board President of Elijah Family Homes said.
Lott said the home will take around five months to build.
