Shelter needs small appliances

By SUE WATSON

New Hope Village shelter is accepting donations of money and small apartment-size appliances like washers, dryers and cooking stoves.

The shelter has enough clothing but also accepts non-perishable foods, furniture, and other household items.

The shelter’s pantry provides food for those who are in need and operates a resell shop where donated small articles are sold to raise funds to operate the shelter.

Dillard said the shelter currently has 19 residents; 10 adults and nine children.

The shelter provided food and clothing to over 30 evacuees following Hurricane Katrina - all going to a group of families taking refuge in the home of a relative in the Holly Springs area, several weeks ago.

The shelter is supported with funds from a homeless prevention grant, private donations of money and goods, fundraising activities and volunteer services and skills from those in the community.
