St. Benedict's Homeless Shelter begins fundraising drive

In Owensboro, the St. Benedict's Homeless Shelter is beginning its biggest fundraiser of the year to help homeless men in the community. The shelter is looking for people to sponsor 60 beds for one year. Staff say the $500 sponsorship goes towards food, bed linens, medication, grooming items, and other services the men may need. Each sponsor will have their name displayed on a plaque at the shelter. Staff say last year St. Benedict's Homeless Shelter gave more than 200 men a place to stay.


To become a sponsor or for more information you can contact Joe Welsh at 270-302-1161 or Harry Pedigo at 270-315-4419.
