Summer Fund Drive for Maxine Lewis Memorial Shelter Aims to Raise $15,000

The Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo County has launched a summer fund drive for the Maxine Lewis Memorial Shelter. Please help us reach the goal of raising $15,000 for the Maxine Lewis Memorial Shelter by July 31, 2014.

Every night, the Maxine Lewis Memorial Shelter provides emergency shelter and/or meals for 100-150 homeless individuals. Approximately 10% are children between the ages of birth and 18. The shelter provides a refuge from sleeping in cars or out in the elements, but it also provides healthy meals and the support and encouragement needed to help people rebuild their lives.

Every year, private donations from caring community members account for more than 1/4th of the Shelter’s overall budget. Every dollar helps feed, shelter, and support those that need it. Thank you!
