OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - A homeless shelter in Olympia is seeking donations to allow it to continue providing a place to sleep for young adults this summer.

KING-TV reports (https://kng5.tv/28M9TOa ) that the Charles Shelan Brighter Futures Youth Center will stop providing bed space for the summer if it doesn’t raise $50,000 by Friday. The Olympia nonprofit Community Youth Services has set up a GoFundMe page online to help raise the funds.

The shelter, which opened in 2013, provides clothing, food and shelter for homeless people between the ages of 18 and 24.

The nonprofit’s CEO, Scott Hanauer, says the group doesn’t have enough funds to keep the shelter open overnight during the summer months. He says people will still be able to receive food, clothes and counseling services during that time.
