Levittown church destroyed by fire sells Christmas trees to fund reconstruction
A Levittown church that was destroyed by a fire last year is raising money to rebuild by selling Christmas trees.
Good Shepherd Lutheran Church was destroyed by a fire last Christmas.
The church is selling 1,000 Christmas trees imported from Northern Maine and Canada to raise money to reconstruct the building.
"We're really appreciative of the tree lot and people say, 'We're happy to help support rebuilding the church,'” says Pastor Remo Madsen. “It's kind of a special community feel that we have going on as well."
All proceeds from the tree lot will go towards rebuilding, church salaries, bills, maintenance and supplies.
The lot is open seven days a week until Christmas Eve.
