SEEKING ANNAPOLIS HOMELESS SHELTER DONATIONS

Junior League furnishing renovated Willow House for Homeless Women

Annapolis, MD [May 12, 2008] – Junior League of Annapolis, Inc., (JLA) invites the public to support the JLA partnership with Willow House, a newly renovated home in Annapolis that will provide shelter, programs and support for a rotating population of four homeless women so they can become self sufficient and able to contribute to our community. JLA has created a gift registry at Kmart http://www.Kmart.com  under First name: Willow, Last name: House, so anyone can contribute and help set up the house to prepare it for the new residents.

Willow House is part of the transitional housing program at the Light House Shelter. For nearly two decades the Light House has been helping homeless citizens of Anne Arundel County by providing emergency shelter, transitional housing, eviction prevention and financial support services. Of those helped at the Light House, 75% leave empowered with a place to live, an income and the ability to lead self-sufficient lives. The Light House – A Homeless Prevention and Support Center, is in need of financial gifts, donated services and select items.  For more information on how you, your family, work or community group can help, and for information about Willow House please contact Marilyn Baker, Development and Communication Director, at 410-349-5056 or baker@AnnapolisLightHouse.org.
