Donor offers to double monthly pledges to homeless shelter
An anonymous donor has offered to match any new monthly pledges to Mary’s Shelter this month. The homeless shelter for pregnant women and their children opened five years ago, and has helped hundreds of women in that time. The nonprofit rents four Fredericksburg homes and can help up to 14 women at one time. You can read about the shelter and its growth here.
