New Life Family Shelter

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. Vernon Girl Scout Cadets Danielle Patton and Emily Hocking, both 13, of Troop #8603, donated a backpack filled with a blanket, notebooks and toiletries to one of the first residents to stay the night. 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.
