TORCH begins ‘Raise A Roof!’ fundraising campaign

TORCH is building rapid housing for the homeless in Oak Ridge.

The campaign “Raise A Roof!” began March 1.

TORCH’s Raise the Roof project will consist of a quadplex and duplex built on property on Hamilton Circle in Oak Ridge.

When completed, the project will enable families with children and those with disabilities to quickly have a space to call home until permanent homes become available.

It will be able to house 26 individuals at a time. The significant savings can then go toward helping with utility bills, deposits and other assistance where needed.

People can donate to this campaign at the TORCH website, by mail to P.O. Box 5448 Oak Ridge, TN 37831, or at the campaign page

Any donation amount helps this project. Thank you for all the support everyone has shown TORCH. The supporters are the reason TORCH can continue its work
