Homeless shelter hosts ‘Swap Meet’ fundraiser June 8
The Bay City House of Refuge homeless shelter hosted an Open House and ‘Swap Meet’ fundraising event on Saturday, June 8 at their new location, 2001 Fifth Street.
The event was initially planned for last month but was postponed due to inclement weather conditions.
“We had a great event and I would like to thank the community for coming out to support our efforts to provide a safe, clean bed for individuals needing shelter for the night,” said Bay City House of Refuge President Franc Paiz.
“Our budget is primarily funded directly through charitable contributions from within our own community.
“We rely heavily on the generosity of those who give selflessly and understand the importance of our organization,” said Paiz.
All proceeds go towards the Bay City House of Refuge shelter.
