Donations Help Shelter Recover From Flood

CLEVELAND (AP) - A women's shelter in Cleveland that lost all its everyday items when it was flooded twice earlier this month has replaced everything with the help of donors.

One elderly woman with a cane donated a crumpled dollar bill. She told the staff at the Community Women's Shelter that it was all she had.

Car dealerships and police officers have also chipped in to help the shelter, which houses 150 women nightly.

Flooding on August 2nd and 9th destroyed between $5,000 and $10,000 in supplies, such as blankets, pillows and furniture.

Fifty-one-year-old resident Mattie Williams says the response from donors made her feel good.
