NEW GLASGOW, N.S. —

NEW GLASGOW, N.S. – Glen Haven Manor recently made a donation of several linen carts to Viola’s Place, a homeless shelter located in downtown New Glasgow that serves Pictou County. 
Glen Haven staff appreciate the important role that Viola’s Place has in the community and offered the carts to help support the shelter with the organization of their wide collection of clothing supplies, which were generously given by the community. 
The linen carts have been replaced at Glen Haven with permanent cabinet fixtures. 
“After we had our cabinets built and a new system in place to store our linens, we thought of Viola’s Place and contacted the Society’s Board to see if the carts would be of use,” says Glen Haven CEO Lisa M. Smith. “They were pleased to accept the offer and we were delighted to arrange transfer of the linen carts which provide efficient storage and arrangement of clothing items. We hope that the carts will support Viola’s Place in the important work being carried out by dedicated staff and volunteers.”
Viola’s Place provide shelter and food to the homeless and hungry in the Pictou County area. Long term goals of the society  are homelessness prevention initiatives, step up housing, addictions support, mental health support, job readiness, life skills programming and a social enterprise initiative.
