Battered women’s shelter needs a helping hand

A group of volunteers is working to establish a battered women’s shelter in Mount Vernon, and they need a helping hand.The Madeline House is being organized by A. Yvee Arnold, and the group needs $1,500 to get started, and then will be seeking donations as their ministry grows.

At this time, they need help with rent, getting utilities connected, and stocking their pantry. They have received some donated furniture, but are in need of mattresses and kitchen items. See the March 2 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for information on how to provide assistance.
