Church Supports Children at the Nest
The Mission and Outreach Committee from the First Presbyterian Church recently delivered many toys and afghans to the children who live at the Nest Domestic Violence Shelter. The Committee also donated toiletries for the Mothers, as they have several times in the past.
Committee members Emma Lou Griffin and Ann Jordan said their church was seeking ideas of larger items the shelter was in need of, as their ongoing support of the Nest will include a fundraising campaign to purchase the items for the Nest.
According to Terry Thompson, Shelter Supervisor at the Nest, “We are blessed to have the support of the faith community. Many of our churches in Lincoln County and Mescalero have adopted the Nest as a part of their local mission. We are very grateful to them.”
The Nest provides free and confidential services to survivors of domestic violence and their children. The 6500 square foot shelter has 28 beds and a wheelchair accessible suite. For further information, call 378-6378.
