GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - The Salvation Army says it wants to raise $250,000 to keep its men’s shelter open in Grand Island.

The Grand Island Independent reports (https://bit.ly/2mQ7PeT ) the shelter regularly helps several hundred men each year by offering 24 beds and an assortment of programs.

Maj. Chuck Yockey says the program needs a significant long-term investment to continue.

Shelter Director Deny Cacy says the facility works with the men staying there to help them get any identification they might need to get re-established.

The organization also helps men find work and get clothing they might need for job interviews and daily life.
