Lethbridge Woods Homes Benefits From Royal Wedding Present

 
 
Lethbridge: Local Emergency Youth Shelter "Woods Homes" received a $2,000 present on Tuesday.

  The Alberta government announced that it is giving $25,000 to youth shelters across the province in the name of Prince William and Kate Middleton. This is to keep with the royal couple's wish of charitable donations in lieu of wedding gifts.


 "It was pretty spur of the moment," says Kimberly Wasylowich of Woods' Homes, "we had been in contact with someone in Calgary about what we might use the money for, but we never heard anything back. So when we heard today it was a bit of a surprise for us."


 Wasylowich says that the money will go to help with some furnishings for the shelter.

 
  "Our shelter is badly in need of some new storage, we're looking to get some custom built in units for linens and also some bedside tables for the youth to store their stuff in."


The youth shelter located in Lethbridge south has eight beds which can accomodate youth for up to 15 consecutive days. Youth in need can shower, spend the night, and have a meal with counseling services available.


The province allocated $2000 each to youth shelters in Grande Prairie, Red Deer, Medicine Hat and Fort McMurray, while Edmonton and Calgary youth shelters each received $7500.
