A Place to Call Home – Bell Building House Party – The UMW is participating in Neighborhood Service Organization (NSO)’s efforts to collect items to furnish apartments in the Bell Building through a Target gift registry. This building will provide permanent, supportive housing for chronically homeless people in our community. Either at a Target Store or online at Target.com, go to TargetLists, search by organizations and type in NSO. Find Metro United in the list or visit the list at http://bit.ly/IbQmUu. Most items are under $10. Of course, cash will always work. Make checks payable to NSO and give to Mary Floyd or Jeanette Harris
