Elkhart nonprofits in need of donations to keep doors open

 A group of Elkhart nonprofit charities say they are in serious financial need and are struggling to keep their doors open.

John Shafer with Chicago and Michiana Five for the Homeless says a property tax increase for the building that his charity shares with two other nonprofits on Lusher Avenue has put them in a bind.

“We know that the community can respond, and God wants us here.”

So far, the community has raised $6,000 of the $10,000 owed.

If they fail to come up with the $4,000 needed by November, the doors might have to close.

The charities have set up a GoFundMe page.
