Shelter seeks holiday donations

Lulu Burgess at Old Bay Marketplace, 917 Bay St., Beaufort, will host a holiday open house to benefit Child Abuse Prevention Association Open Arms Shelter from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday. Some of the requested items to bring for the shelter include: any denomination of Walmart gift cards for school uniforms; underwear for children and teens; white crew socks for children; "no-show" socks for teens; or checks made out to "CAPA." In addition, there will be a Wish Tree with tags of Christmas wishes from children in need in Beaufort County. There also will be door prizes, drawings, refreshments and a free halo (while supplies last) for all who donate. Details: Nan Sutton, luluburgess@embarqmail.com, 843-524-5858
