LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – An anonymous donor is giving Lafayette Transitional Housing the chance to double its donations.

Last year, Lafayette Transitional Housing helped nearly 900 homeless people.

Executive director Jennifer Layton said they are excited about this donation challenge.

“We don’t usually have a donor that says, ‘Here, I’ll offer you a donation. I expect you to try and match it,'” said Layton. “It’s a great opportunity and great way for our donors in our community to really get behind this initiative.”
