Leadership Tri-Cities Class XVII invites the public to a dedication and unveiling of their yearlong volunteer project to benefit My Friends' Place, the Tri-Cities' only homeless shelter for teens.
The project called for reorganization of shelving and substantial remodeling to create storage rooms inside the shelter, improvements to make the building entrance and faade more welcoming, and branding and promotional materials to help raise teens' awareness of the shelter's services.
Last fall, the Class solicited proposals from local nonprofits that needed help with a service project. The class received six proposals.
With support from local community members and businesses, along with the Interfaith Youth Group and Shalom United Church of Christ in Richland, the Class raised more than $12,000 for its project work.
The public dedication and unveiling is at 6 p.m. Wednesday at My Friends' Place shelter, 1112 N. Grant Place, Kennewick.
