Athens Area Homeless Shelter to Host Annual Harvest for The Homeless Funder

The Athens Area Homeless Shelter is holding its annual Harvest for The Homeless fundraiser Friday, November 4th. It’s the first time the event will be held in-person since 2019. Shea Post is Executive Director of the organization.

Post says the fundraiser is particularly important because money raised provides discretionary funds for the shelter, which allows them to expand their services.

The event starts at 7 pm at the Cotton Press. It features food, drinks, live music, a silent auction, and a raffle. Visit the website for more information. The facility was designated Nonprofit of the Year from the Athens Community Foundation earlier this year.
