Mary’s Shelter Gulf Coast Supports Hurricane Laura Relief Effort
Mary’s Shelter Gulf Coast, a Lillian home for homeless pregnant women who choose life for their child, is donating dozens of diapers and about 50 pounds of rice and beans to those affected by Hurricane Laura in Louisiana. “We are very fortunate to receive donations for our moms and babies,” said Executive Director Kay Trattles. “Sometimes we are overwhelmed and we don’t have enough storage space.” When Trattles and the staff at the home in Elberta heard that Our Lady of the Gulf Catholic Church in Gulf Shores was sending supplies, they searched the shelves and closets and found an abundance of diapers of all sizes and an abundance of rice and beans. “We are happy to be able to help others, when so many good people help us,”she said.
