The Minot YWCA came about $3,000 closer to its capital campaign goal with a raffle fundraiser.
The YWCA looks to raise about $150,000 to complete the $1.1 million renovation of its shelter building. The Florence Anderson Center of Hope has opened with capacity to serve 17 homeless women and their children for up to 30 days. The shelter is full, as are six newly created apartments that serve low-income women.
A handicapped-accessible apartment, offices and a community room will be located on the main floor. Construction continues on that portion of the building.
