Doesn't everyone deserve a place to to call home when they need it the most? I say yes. Yes indeed!

Here's more about Crossroads of Owensboro, "We are the only walk-in emergency overnight shelter for homeless women and children in Owensboro/Daviess County. We also provide emergency food assistance to over 2,500 each month. We are also the only place in the area that offers a food program for low-income seniors (providing over 650 seniors with monthly food boxes). We have a few other specific programs as well."

"Our mission is to alleviate the symptoms of poverty, while providing common ground where the growth and development of hope is fostered through community service. We believe that when we interact with one another, we are all changed; socioeconomic, theological and cultural differences fade away, opening the door to a more just world."

Donating during our Aid the Homeless Textathon is incredibly easy. All you have to do is text the word GIVE to 833-814-7739. Stay tuned to WBKR, Friday, October 23rd from 6am to 6pm for hourly updates and the grand tote board total!
