WENATCHEE — Local homeless shelters turned to community generosity to get them through heavy snow this week.

Shelters reported being full or close to it as snowfall came out to two or more feet depending on the area.

Haven of Hope snow

Monique Johnson, Wenatchee Rescue Mission's director of women's services, stands outside the Mission's Haven of Hope women's shelter. The Mission spent hours making a path to the shelter after its snow plow broke. Vamanos Movers eventually helped clear the Mission's main headquarters. 

Lighthouse plowing

Marty Fenton of Cornerstone Christian Church plows the Lighthouse Christian Ministries parking lot on Friday. Lighthouse trucks were stuck and unable to pick up food for Lighthouse's free food market before the plow, forcing the market to cancel its normal hours on Saturday.
