Forest White, councilman in Turlock, recently donated $500 to the Mission Gospel Fellowship for its homeless shelter project. He challenged others to do the same. Councilman White should be highly commended for his actions. It shows he has become aware of the needs of this community and has taken a step to fill that need.

Stanislaus State University and the city did a survey and estimated that there were 300 to 400 homeless people in Turlock. At present, there is probably every bit of that. Forest White has pointed the city in the right direction.
