During the month of October, the activities department of the Forest City Nursing and Rehab Center conducted a charity drive to benefit the Schaeffer's Retreat Homeless Shelter in Carbondale.
Employees of the Nursing Center donated coats, canned goods, boxed foods and clothing as well as personal care items. The donations fed five families and all coats collected were distributed to those in need within two days.
The Schaeffer's Retreat Homeless Shelter accepts donations of clothing, food, toys, cash or gift cards. Call 282-0761 or visit SchaeffersRetreatHomelessShelter.weebly.com for more information.
