Sacramento Homeless Shelter Program Fully Funded
Tuesday, November 20, 2012
Sacramento's winter sanctuary program says it's raised the money to give 100 homeless people a place to sleep each night.
Wells Fargo Bank donated $50,000 to the Sacramento Steps Forward non-profit that runs the shelter program. The donation puts the organization over its $150,000 goal for the winter.
Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson says the non-profit provides shelter more efficiently than the City and County were able to at Cal Expo, "Nearly 100 people on any given night from November through March will receive a warm place to sleep and a meal to eat at over 25 local churches, synagogues and mosques on a rotating basis.
