Prominent Citizens Indorse Pro-,
ject to Raise Funds for j
Worthy Charity. 1
Governor Maun. Mayor Ainslie and!
a number of prominent men and wo-1
men of the city are sponsors for a
movement to raise a fund of JS.00Qi
with which to purchase and equip a
building to house the .Home for lies-;
titute Colored Children, at present
operated with meagre equipment at
lid] Taylor Street. The institution n
the !i\e yturs of its life has cared fur
hundreds of destitute colored children
and prepared them for useful lives.
Lake many institutions of its Send.!
this one is the outgrowth of the big -!
hearted chanty of a woman. More'
than tlve years ago three colored waits
were taken to the City Home to be
cared for. It was boon found that the
home w-as not a suitable place, and
Rena V. Crawford, a colored woman
S OOP II for her deeds of charity, offered
to care for them at her own expense, j
From time to time she took in more
waits until the number grew so large
that her means were not equal to the:
task of providing for them.
Voluntary contributions from white
and colored people were secured and
a temporary' home founded at Leigh
Hall, on Third Street, between Mar-.
shall and Clay. The institution grow
in size, removed to 516 North Leigh
Street, and finally to Its present loca?
tion. With a steady Increase la the
number of children, the home has
again become inadequate, and It is
proposed to raise money ?Ith which
to buy the building and enlarjr,. it.
If purchased at once it can be se-1
cured for $1.809. The Improvements
and additions will cost about $1.200.
A finance committee made up of.
members of the various city churches
has been formed to secure the money
by appeal to the public. Contributions
are asked to be forwarded to the
treasurer. Mrs. J. CaJvin Stewair. 1031
West Grace Street. The other SKSn-j
bers of the finance committee aro,:
Mrs. Henry Baskervlll. Mrs D B. Ten
nant. Mrs W. J. Maybee. Mrs. B U
Willlngham. Mrs. W. W. Archer. Mr?
W. H. Shelton. Miss Carrie Lancaster!
and Miss Adele Corllng. ?
As soon as the money is In hind
the institution will be chartere-l and
placed under capable management.
The project has the indorsement of
the State Board of Charltle- and Cor?
rections. T>r J. T. Mastln. Rev .T.-i:.:rs
