Holy Family Shelter: Stories of Help and Hope

Women smilingA married couple asked their friends and family to make a financial contribution to Holy Family Shelter instead of giving them presents for their wedding anniversary. Nearly $300 was donated in their honor, which was used to take 15 children living at the shelter on a field trip to The Children’s Museum and Indianapolis Zoo.

A high school class was going help clean and sort donated clothing at the shelter. Instead they learned that their efforts would be more effective to homeless families by raising money with a school dance. They collected $550 which was used to pay for school supplies and school clothes for ten homeless teenagers.

A local company put out a collection jar during each of their staff meetings for three months. They raised $2,700 which paid the gas bill at the shelter for two months last winter.
