The Charity League has announced it has chosen Timon's Ministries as the non-profit it will help this year.

Every year, the Charity League raises money for a non-profit organization.

This morning, Charity League President Michelle Ezell and Timon's Ministries Executive Director Kae Berry signed a contract stating the Charity League will raise funds this year for the Flour Bluff-based organization.

Timon's Ministries located on the 10500 block of South Padre Island is a faith-based group that offers food, clothing and dental services to the poor.

Berry said the group will use the money to add more showers and laundry facilities.

"It's a dream come true for Timons," Berry said, "We are bursting out of our seams because there are so many people, not homeless, necessarily, just people hanging by a thread. They come here to do laundry, to shower, to eat and often times for fellowship at mealtime."

Before today's news conference, Berry said she was extremely grateful to work with the Charity League.

"We're super excited and we have a lot of respect for the Charity League because we know the good they do and their hearts are in it".

The Charity League will hold several fundraisers over the next few months and wrap up their efforts with a style show at the American Bank Center in February.
