Men’s Shelter to host fundraiser

TAHLEQUAH — The Tahlequah Men’s Shelter, O-Si-Yo, will be conducting a “Pay It Forward” fundraiser in December.

Shelter residents may stay for varying lengths of time and are assisted with finding community services. The Men’s Shelter serves all of Cherokee County. It costs about $10 for a resident to stay for three days with a bunk, bedding, warm meal, and hot shower. Residents are screened for felony charges. The Zarrow Foundation will match all money raised through Dec. 31.

Donations may be mailed to 118 W. Keetoowah in Tahlequah. For more information, call (918) 453-2520.
