CHICO, Calif. - The Wells Fargo Bank and the Foor Foundation donated $50,000 to the Torres Community Shelter for help with their Restoration Dignity project.

$40,000 from Wells Fargo is meant to go toward replacing the 16-year-old bunk beds in the facility. The other $10,000 from the Foor Foundation is for shelving and storage for those who stay at the shelter.

"When guests check-in we can relieve the burden of carrying their items along with them everywhere they go," said executive director Joy Amaro about the new storage.

The Torres Shelter serves about 160 people a night, with many sleeping on mats on the floor.

The shelter says this is the first time since their opening in 2003 they have been given "gifts designed to restore dignity amongst the guests they serve nightly".
