Adopt-A-Bed Update


The Midway Shelter for abused women and their children would like to thank the individuals and groups who contributed to the shelter in October. A number of the listed donors contributed several times last month.

The shelter thanks Gabrielle Dolphin, Paula Patillo-Dupree, The Pipkin-McGrath family, Lois Singley, Christine Buck and the Alameda Welfare Council for their generous gifts. Virginia Krutilek was among last month’s donors as was Maxine, Lynda Sussman, Susan & Lois Freeman, M. Buck and the Twin Towers United Methodist Women in memory of Beth Eisenhower.

We couldn’t have done without the donations from Lois Pryor, Kathryn & Alan Hanley, Twin Towers Methodist Church, Bank of Marin and One Toyota in the names of Susanne & John Phillips Gallagher. Two additional donors wished to remain anonymous.

Donations may be sent to Alameda Homeless Network, P.O. Box 951, Alameda, CA 94501. For more information, call 523-2377 or visit
