Update on Lynhill Condos Fundraising Effort
In response to the emergency housing situation at the Lynnhill Condominiums in Temple Hills, Maryland last month, The Community Foundation in Prince George’s County responded to an outpouring of support from the community to support the immediate needs of those impacted. Approximately 77 families were affected by a power shut-off due to a long-standing conflict between owners, the condominium association, and utility companies.
We are very proud to announce that, because of the community’s deep generosity, we have collected over $24,000 in donations. The Community Foundation made a grant to the Prince George’s County Department of Social Services, which is providing case management for the affected families now. County agencies have assisted 30 families with relocation so far, and are in progress with another 50-55 families, as multiple families occupied some units.
Our deepest thanks go out to the community and our family of donors for stepping up to help – not just in an emergency like this one, but every day. You’re making our region stronger.
