Organizations Come Together To Help Kids And Renovate Homeless Shelter
TODAY's Shine a Light series supports worthy causes. In this case, Willie Geist has helped homeless families by renovating a shelter in New York, along with the help of Bright Horizons Foundation for Children. Willie interviewed and got to know a young girl named Dominique. The 14-year-old is homeless and has been for quite some time. Instead of being a 'normal' kid she has to worry about food, where they will sleep and taking care of her mother. She has more burden than any person- let alone a kid- should have to carry. Willie got together with Bright Horizons - with donations from Pottery Barn, The Brooklyn Nets and other places, to add a little joy to the lives of homeless children at the shelter.
