Tough economic times have taken a toll on everyone, and one local shelter is in dire need of some extra help.
The Mother Teresa Shelter helps serve more than 300 homeless daily, and they need help to buy supplies, food and maintenance of the shelter. They are holding a fundraiser to help pay some of these cost.
This holiday season, if you donate $10 or more, you will receive a lovely Mother Teresa Christmas card. If you donate $25 or more, you will get an ornament and a card.
Cheryl Woiebe, formerly homeless, said that, now that she is back on her feet, she is lending a hand to those who helped her.
"You never know what's going to happen, so it's time to step up and give to the shelter," Woiebe said.
For more information, you can contact the shelter at 361-883-7372.
