Gov. Snyder, Others Volunteer At Lansing Shelter

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder and members of his staff helped sort toys for about 30 homeless children at a Lansing shelter.

Snyder told reporters Friday at the City Rescue Mission that "it's important to volunteer" and that he and his staff have been doing so for several months across the state.

It's part of an effort to draw attention to the need to assist homeless people.

City Rescue Mission is a 102-year-old nonprofit that offers homeless families meals, a place to stay and other assistance. The mission is the largest Lansing-area emergency shelter, with 58 beds for men and 100 beds for women and children. It's open year-round.

Friday's event is part of the "Do Something" initiative. Details of the effort are posted online.
