MIDDLEBURY - A detailed, three-story American colonial artisan dollhouse was donated to HOPE in Addison County and will be raffled off in support of the organization's housing assistance and homeless prevention programs.
Right now there are many local families who are on the verge of homelessness. HOPE officials suggest it's a good time of the year for people to pause in their preparations for holiday gatherings and think of those who may not have a home in which to gather and purchase raffle tickets.
The dollhouse is on display at 51 Main St. at the bridge in Middlebury.
Tickets are on sale at 51 Main St., at Vermont Bookshop on Main Street, at Rosie's Diner on Route 7, and at HOPE located behind G. Stone Motors off Route 7. The drawing will take place at this week at 51 Main St.
