Gov. Snyder, others to volunteer at shelter
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder and others are volunteering at a Lansing shelter as part of an effort to draw attention to the need to assist homeless people.
The governor's office says the group plans to be at City Rescue Mission's shelter for women and children on Friday afternoon. They plan to join rescue mission employees in organizing donated toys for women staying at the shelter to give their children.
City Rescue Mission is a 102-year-old nonprofit that offers homeless families meals, a place to stay and other assistance. The mission is the largest Lansing-area emergency shelter, with 58 beds for men and 100 beds for women and children. It's open year-round.
Friday's event is part of the "Do Something" initiative. Details of the effort are posted online.
