Shiloh's Take Down the Signs Update # 3
Shiloh has posted another update regarding their campaign to raise money to make the repairs required by the city's condemnations of their vacant properties. The full text of the update is available here. The update states that as of July 8, 2007, the church raised $170,672.00 towards the campaign and that the church continues to accept money for this purpose (although the campaign has come to an end officially). The scope of work is greater than originally anticipated (originally the church forecast the repairs would cost $100,000). The update also reveals that the church received a “notice for cause” on June 29, 2007 regarding its vacant property at 1533 9th Street; the church anticipates minimal work will be needed on this property to bring it up to District of Columbia’s standards.
