MT. VERNON — — The New Life Family Shelter, operated by Lifeboat Alliance, completed its first day Monday. Volunteers continued to work to complete the wings, kitchen and pantry areas. Betty Stelnazewski, Kay McCulley and Sue Tomlin, volunteer coordinator, worked the door and prepared other items. Mt.

The scouts are filling backpacks donated by Continental Resources as a part of their Silver Project, said leader Nicolle Patton. Donated items, from furniture to 44 handmade quilts from Abby Newell, are bringing the shelter together, said Lifeboat Alliance Executive Director Jenny O’Daniel.
