Young Women Clean Shelter
WINONA, MINNESOTA -- Winona State University at Winona, Minnesota,
was the recently the site of seminars, activities and community
service for local young women.
Roughly 750 young women from Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Manitoba and
Ontario gathered for the entire first week of August to be instructed by
such leaders as Elder Thomas A. Holt, of the Fifth Quorum of the Seventy,
and Sister Carol B. Thomas, first counsellor in the Young Women general
Most of the service done by the young women was at a local women shelter.
"Grace Place," designed for helping young women at risk, was in dire need of
weeding, repainting, window washing and basement cleaning.
Managers of the shelter had received a grant to repaint the three-story
Victorian home, but there was no way their current volunteer base could
accomplish it within a year - one of the stipulations of the grant.
Angie Bohringer, executive director of Grace Place, mentioned that the girls
were able to finish the work in only a few hours, where their regular
volunteers would have taken two years.
