Odessa Crisis center to receive donation

At 10:30 a.m. Monday, local H-E-B employees will join together at the H-E-B store on 42nd Street to present a $50,000 gift to the Odessa Crisis Center to help with construction of the facility’s new Women and Children’s Center, which is slated to break ground next year.
The donation will go toward outfitting the shelter’s new kitchen with multiple work stations where families can prepare their meals together.
The Crisis Center needs a new shelter in order to increase the number of families served, according to a news release. The 16,000 square-foot facility will feature 18 bedrooms, 18 bathrooms, a large kitchen, a 3,400 square-foot child play area, fencing and state of the art security. The current Angel House Shelter only has eight bedrooms and two community bathrooms with much-needed upgrades to the kitchen and other areas.
The H-E-B Tournament of Champions is one of the largest charitable events of its kind in the nation.
