QUINCY - The ongoing effort to build tiny homes for area veterans in need received a major boost Thursday.
Dakota Access Pipeline LLC donated $160,000 to the Quincy-based group 2x4's for Hope during a ceremony at the Dick Brothers Brewery Museum on York Street.
The funding will help build four more tiny (575-square-foot) homes in Quincy, plus complete the funding for a partially built tiny home in Brown County.
"This is a perfect alignment of a plan to bring our community together and rebuild neighborhoods, lives and friendships by working together to make a difference," said Mark Lawrence, co-founder of 2x4's for Hope. "Empowering people, changing lives, setting examples and planting seeds continue to produce real results with real people."
