Submitted story

The Highland County Homeless Shelter has partnered with Brandy Jordan, Avon independent rundraising representative, for a holiday fundraising initiative. Shoppers can finish up their holiday gift lists, take advantage of end of season sales, and contribute to those less fortunate.

Up to 40 percent of purchases placed through the fundraiser will be donated to the shelter.

Purchases can be made online at www.avon.com/fundraiser/HCHS.

The Highland County Homeless Shelter is open 365 days a year and can offer assistance and support for up to 28 men, women and children, for a maximum of 90 days. The shelter provides beds, food and shelter, along with access to essential programs and services that enable homeless individuals to rebuild their confidence, and their lives.
