Aid the Homeless donates $29,000 to local shelters

Leaders of Aid the Homeless recently donated a total of $29,000 to a group of Owensboro nonprofits that serve residents who experience homelessness.

The check was presented to St. Benedict’s Shelter for Men, St. Joseph Peace Mission for Children, CrossRoads of Hope, Daniel Pitino Shelter, Oasis Shelter, and Boulware Mission. 

During the past year, COVID-19 proved devastating to local nonprofits, which faced unexpected expenses related to the pandemic and a loss of revenue from canceled fundraising events. 

Although it was a difficult year for fundraising, Aid the Homeless never faltered. It stayed true to its mission of supporting people in need. 

St. Benedict’s is proud to be among the recipients of this generous donation.  We thank Aid the Homeless for investing in our mission and our clients.
