Shelter Shuffle raises money for homeless families

Catholic Charities held its annual Shelter Shuffle 5K Run/Walk at the former Harrisburg State Hospital grounds.

The run benefits the nonprofit's Interfaith Shelter for Homeless Families, and it's the only one of its kind in the area that takes entire families when they are in need.

Over the year it's helped 136 families, or 393 individuals, nearly 200 of which were children.

The shelter can always use donations and volunteers; visit their site here.

Our Valerie Pritchett served as the emcee for the event.
