Fresno Shelter Gets Renovation Help From Volunteers
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A Downtown Fresno homeless shelter got a much-needed renovation this weekend.
Dozens of volunteers from a local church went to Evangel Home to help complete the project.
Through the weekend, crews installed a new roof, new doors and put up a rain gutter. A playground on site was also a part of the renovation project.
Evangel home purchased materials using grant money, but all of the labor was donated.
Evangel home is a shelter for homeless women and children which has been in the area for more than 50 years.
