Lowell High grad aids housing charity

A Lowell High School graduate is pledging to help a pastor continue his work on behalf of the homeless community after the two completed a 250-mile fund-raising bike ride this summer. Kabagambe Jjangu, who moved to the United States four years ago, first witnessed homelessness in his native Democratic Republic of Congo and later in Uganda. When the Rev. Peter Lovett of Christ Church United in Lowell put the call out for youth group members willing to ride from California to Colorado to support his All Souls House project to create housing for local homeless families, Jjangu signed on. Though the two had to stop their journey in Nevada due to weather and mechanical issues, they are continuing raise awareness and funds for the project.
