More community members are doing what they can to contribute to a local agency.
Members of group three of the Leadership Lauderdale class are helping out the South Harbor Shelter. The shelter can hold up to 32 clients per night. Family units can support up to two families of five. Community Bank, Harper Hospice and The Medical Store sponsored the event Saturday in which a cookout was held at the shelter to feed the clients hamburgers and hot dogs. Members like Julie Walker say they are happy to be helping the shelter.
"This is just an opportunity for us to give back to the community. I know I've been blessed enough that all of my life, I've had a place to call home and a family who could provide meals on the table every night. But not everyone is that fortunate, so we are just doing what we can to help out these people," says Julie Walker.
Cowboy Maloney's Electric City also donated 2 microwave ovens and 2 mini refrigerators to the shelter.
"We like to participate in local community organizations so that we can help the community," says Ronald Lane, of Cowboy Maloney's.
The group also presented the shelter with a check of 300 dollars from their sponsors.
