Artistrsquos Look To Draw Support For Homeless Shelter 2009: Walton Sun

Artistrsquos look to draw support for homeless shelter

The Walton Sun provides dedicated news and information for the beautiful beaches of Walton County, in the panhandle of Florida.
Controversy over the homeless shelter in Fort Walton Beach caught the attention of local artist Misti Schneidewind and her husband, Charles. After reading the sentiments of residents in the Sylvania Heights neighborhood and that of a pastor, Schneidewind felt she needed to make people aware that not everyone felt the shelter would be a detriment to the area. Reading about the concerns of the shelter, Misti shared her frustration with her husband, and asked him what he thought they could do to show their support. Enlisting the help of seven other artists they decided to host a charity event at Artists at Gulf Place. On Feb. 28 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. the Schneidewind’s will have a large truck at Artist’s at Gulf Place to collect items for the shelter.
“We have reserved a large U-haul,” she said. “Our hope is to fill it with most of the items the shelter has stated they need.”
